There are multiple deep potholes on the section of road on both carriageways, the potholes are getting worse as they have not been repaired recently. It is impossible to safely avoid the potholes when travelling in either direction for about 2 miles south bound from JCT 67. This has been an issue for many months now and is causing a significant risk of damage to vehicles.
Thank you for reporting this issue to us via FixMyStreet. We appreciate the time you've taken to contact us about this.
Costain Jacobs working on behalf of National Highways apologise for any inconvenience caused by the condition of the carriageway.
The team have recently filled in several potholes but due to the recent bad weather these have opened again.
Our Traffic Safety Control Officers (TSCO’s) patrol the scheme regularly and report any carriageway defects to the traffic management team. The team have a plan in place to repair potholes as they are identified and continue to fill them in as soon as possible.
When the widening of the A1 is complete and we have the extra lane either side of the carriageway, we'll be resurfacing all lanes as part of the A1 Birtley to Coal House scheme.
Kind Regards, National Highways on behalf of Costain Jacobs
