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.
