A best practice road network

A19 Dishforth-Tyne Tunnel Trunk Road Improvement Scheme

Building and maintaining a key national strategic 125km route in the North East that carries up to 90,000 cars per day.

A key element of infrastructure and road improvements in the North East, the project is a 30-year concession to improve and construct over 120km of strategic dual carriageway, including refurbishing bridges and viaducts. The contract extends to routine operations and both major and routine network maintenance.

Project structure: DBFO to design, build, finance and operate. Let under the Governments’ PFI initiative.

Our role: PFI Concession owner managing all aspects of the project.


A network made to last - a commitment to a long-term partnership

The A19 is critical to the North East’s economy - an artery for goods, people and national connections. Making it ready for the next 100 years while keeping traffic moving freely every day needs meticulous planning, innovation and robust construction.

We never underestimate the importance of our work and drive collaboration, rigour, quality and safety in every aspect of the project, from construction to operations. Whether strengthening bridges, designing new structures, installing emergency phones or helping motorists, best practice underpins our actions.

We have responsibility for every metre of the 120km network. We take care for each of the 90,000 cars using the roads every day and pride ourselves in the innovations and actions that help support the North East’s economy and communities.
