Highways England regularly undertakes route safety action plan studies on the A19.

This study looks to identify accident clusters and then undertakes analysis of the accidents to see if there are any common causation factors.

In the most recent study accident cluster sites were identified between Testos and Seaham. The analysis of the causation factors showed that driver behaviour was the primary cause of accidents at these sites.
