  • Thank you for contacting us via FixMyStreet on 31 May 2024 to report several potholes on the entry slip of the A1(M), Birtley. We appreciate the time you’ve taken to contact us.

    We can advise we recently conducted resurfacing on the mainline and entry slip on the northbound carriageway due to surface defects. We’re aware of further defects and currently discussions are taking place for a possible reactive scheme.

    In the meantime, we’ve arranged for a site visit this week to review the current conditions you've reported.
