All vehicles are to be diverted via the A695 east- and west-bound.  Horsley Road, Ovingham will remain open.  NCC will not allow any road closure until satisfied that all alternative arrangements are in place for diversions, and school and public transport.

During the closure, school pupils who normally have a pick-up point at Acomb Drive or Wylam Hills Farm are being asked to walk to the nearest pick-up point at Charlie's Corner.  This will enable the service to run at its normal time of 08.30 at Charlie's Corner with a return at 15.40, without the need for a diversion or earlier pick-up times.

An update on arrangements for public transport services will follow when available.
