As part of the Government’s £15 billion investment commitment for the strategic road network announced on the 1st December, the Department for Transport’s Road Investment Strategy includes committed funding to dual the single carriageway sections of the A1 from Morpeth to Ellingham, providing 13 more miles of dual carriageway and tripling the amount of continuous dual carriageway north of Newcastle.

The Government will continue to consider the case for improvements to the remaining single carriageway sections of the A1 between Ellingham and the Scottish border - the only elements of the 330 mile A1 outside London that is not dual carriageway or motorway standard.
