Road restrictions during New Elvet bridge repairs

 Please be advised that the use of Quarryheads Lane by vehicular traffic is being maintained in both directions with the exception that only buses, taxis, cycles and authorised vehicles can enter it from Quarryheads roundabout.

You can find all the details on our dedicated web-page www.durham.gov.uk/newelvet  

The access to Quarryheads Lane from Quarryheads roundabout will not be possible from the 20th July as this will be restricted by a Bus Gate – this will be camera enforced.  Any motorist coming from this direction will have to go up Potters Bank, turn right to the A167 to Neville’s Cross, turn right onto A690 Crossgate Peth and then turn right again at the traffic lights onto Margery Lane and approach from that direction.  There is no restriction on exiting Quarryheads Lane in either direction.
