Improving Roads, Improving Lives
Tees Valley Combined Authority, in partnership with the five local councils and Highways England, has set out proposals for better transport connections across the area.
Part of the plan includes extensive improvements to our road network. For too long, residents of Tees Valley have suffered from frustrating delays where our major roads are simply not equipped to deal with the volume of traffic that they carry on a daily basis.
These proposals include a new Tees crossing, taking some pressure off the A19 Tees Viaduct, and enhanced east-west connectivity with improvements to the A66 between the A1(M) and Teesport, which includes a new Darlington bypass.
An improved road network will provide more access to global markets, increasing our capacity for growth and creating more jobs for the people of Tees Valley.
