Road's better.

Long awaited improvement works to a problem Cramlington road are finished.

The B1326 Cramlington to Seaton Delaval road suffered from years of flooding, leading to regular road closures and severe potholing, causing discomfort and inconvenience to users of this important local link.

In consultation with the Environment Agency Council, engineers working for Northumberland County Council highways division rebuilt and raised the road by 1.5 metres.

They also incorporated a grass `swale' as a means of draining, filtering and cleaning water flowing from the highway. The road was raised using 4,000 cubic metres of recycled material.

Improved parking facilities for the nearby public open space and nature reserve have also been provided.
