detour sign

A road closure at West Denton will lead to a month-long detour for residents and visitors to the Alan Shearer Centre and Auton House, Newcastle.

The new Barratt Homes construction on the former Lemington School site will force the closure of a section of the road for sewer work from Monday 20 January for four weeks. A diversion will be in operation to avoid the short stretch of the West Denton Road.

"We will be open for business as usual," Jackie Dunn, the Alan Shearer Centre Services Manager, confirmed. "The civil engineering firm doing the work will have a diversion signposted which will mean a detour on Union Hall Road to get to us via the mini roundabout instead. Access to West Denton Close, which is the driveway directly into the centre, is still open and clear for traffic."

Visitors coming to the Alan Shearer Centre between 20 January and 17 February should allow a little more time for their journey. The detour should be easily identified while driving or you can download our diversion map.

Anyone with queries regarding the road closure should contact the Lumsden and Carroll customer care line on 0191 377 4500.
