Roads to Avoid in County Durham
 
Travelers and motorists in County Durham are often faced with slowdown in traffic due to narrow lanes and various road maintenance and improvements at some of the county’s major roads. 
 
Heavy traffic is often experienced by motorists passing along A172 Marton Road in Middlesbrough, between Broughton Avenue and Broadwell Road, due to closure of one lane. The narrow lane along A1085 Trunk Road in Redcar also causes traffic congestion during the morning and late afternoon rush hours. 
 
Temporary traffic lights are also observed along A689 Front Street in Stanhope, A68 Rowley Bank in Castleside, and A690 Brandon, as well as along A688 in Evenwood where all driving lanes have been affected due to a road improvement project currently being done.
Major roads in Grangetown, Hilton and Toft Hill should also be avoided during rush hours as these roads easily get congested with traffic due to bridge maintenance, gas and water main works and roadworks.
