13 January 2023B6320 closure (January 2023)

Please see the note below received from Northumberland County Council regarding the closure of the B6320 for repairs.


As you may well be aware, we had to close the section of the B63320 passed Otterburn Mill on Tuesday afternoon, as the area we had the temporary lights on to stop people driving into the potholes, had then developed big potholes in the 'live' lane. Therefore, on safety grounds we had no option other than to close the road as we were unable to repair the road due to the flood water.

We have since carried out some drainage investigations works and meet on site with the tenant and landowner at Brownchesters, which was a very useful meeting for us all.

Today we have done some further work to attempt to get all the water of the carriageway and then carried out some repairs to the carriageway which in turn, will allow us to reopen the road this afternoon.

However, further work is required on this section and I will therefore have to closed the road again on Monday morning (16th). Once reclosed, the road will remain closed at all times until the work is completed. I am hoping we can complete all work by close of play on Wednesday 28th, but I will keep you informed.

I appreciate the inconvenience this courses to everyone, but in order to carry out the work safely, we have no other options then to close  the road while work is carried out.
