Major Roads in Northumberland
 
Since you are hiring vans, it would be advisable to familiarize yourself with the major road routes of the area. These are some of the more important ones:
 
A6079 – connects Hexaham to the A68 road
A197 – connects Cliffton to Newbiggin-by-the-Sea
A696 – heads southeast to Newcastle-upon-Tyne
A68 – heads south to join A69 at Corbridge. Towards north-west it leads to Edinberg
 
There are no motorways passing through Northumberland although M74 passes through its western periphery.
 
Roads to Avoid in Northumberland
 
Expect heavy traffic at A1068 as one lane is closed due to roadworks between A192 and A1172 in Nelson Village. For passengers and drivers passing by B6342 Bridge Street, expect delays due to temporary traffic lights and bridge maintenance work between Whitton Bank Road and Town Foot, in Rothbury. This development is projected to be finished by the 15th of December this year.
 
For a faster travel, avoid both B6320 Humshaugh and B1331 Bedlington since both are undergoing roadworks. The project for Humshaugh is expected to end by the 18th of June while Bedlington is expected to be finished by the 21st of June this year.  
 
There are also roadworks and restrictions on B6351 Main Road, Kirknewton. Heavy congestion and delay is expected in this area.
B6347 in Christon Bank is also heavily congested due to roadworks and stop/go boards. Drivers and passengers who are in a hurry should avoid this area.
