Emergency road closures
Information about roads in the county that are unexpectedly and temporarily closed (for example, due to an accident or weather).
- Whorlton Suspension Bridge has been closed to traffic due to a safety issue. It is still open for pedestrians and cyclists. A signposted seven mile diversion via Winston and Ovington is in place.
We are currently in the process of closing Thorntree Gill, Horden at the junction of the A1086 (Coast Road). This is due to an RTC which has resulted in a telegraph pole coming down. Northern Power Grid and BT are on site, it is anticipated the closure will remain in place overnight while repairs are carried out.
