Traffic management & project news
The Elton Interchange project involves the construction of junction improvement works, changing the current layout of two roundabouts at the Elton junction of the A66 to an interchange. The objectives of this project are to increase the capacity of the road network, reduce travel times (greater predictability of travel times) and create modern and safe links between communities and main highways which will ensure that current and upcoming housing developments will be able to continue.
Key works have been planned for summer months to minimise disruption and maximise productivity of earthworks operations.
The Project, which will be completed in six phases, is primarily funded by Homes England with contributions from Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council.
