About the scheme

The Darlington Northern Link Road is a potential new road between the A66/A1150 Little Burdon junction and A1(M) Junction 59. It will link the Tees Valley, including key assets such as Teesport, Teesworks and Teesside International Airport, with the A1(M) and beyond. It will also establish an efficient link between Newton Aycliffe and the expanding port facilities on the River Tees.

We last consulted on this scheme in 2017 and since then we have revised the proposals, having considered all the consultation feedback.

In November 2020 we ran another public engagement exercise to get the views of local people and businesses on our proposed plans.

The engagement period is now closed, but you can still take a look at our plans by downloading a copy of the brochure here.

Following the public engagement, we will analyse the feedback received. Comments will be used to inform the next stages of development of the scheme and the business case that is being produced.

Public Events

We have hosted a series of events where our team presented the proposals. Due to the changing guidance around COVID-19, all our public events were held online.

The events have now finished, but if you missed them and would like to watch them back, you can visit  our virtual engage room here
