If you travel for a session via A184, Heworth Roundabout or A194(M) you may find this useful.
Roadworks have started on Heworth Roundabout and are expected to last 6-7months – don’t panic going around is not that tricky!
Currently A184 Felling Bypass near Heworth Roundabout is limited to one lane both directions.
There is no access to Heworth Roundabout from A185 Shields Road (from the North) or from Sunderland Road (from the South).
Delays on A184 are significant in rush hours and worth avoiding whenever possible. Outside of rush hours the delays are minimal and should add no more than 5-10min to your journey time.
Below I have made a few suggestions for alternative routes you may find useful.
Travelling from Newcastle/Gateshead/West via A184
Although the road works seems significant there is a very easy and quick detour that adds only a few minutes to the journey
Your best bet at this stage is to take Sunderland Road, turn left into Stoneygate Lane and then first left after bridge into Abbotsford Road to rejoin the A184 just before the Heworth Roundabout.
Detour via Leam Lane to A194(M) is not recommended due to the Northbound rush hour traffic on A194(M)
Travelling from the South/A1
Westbound traffic on A184 towards Newcastle is affecting the Northbound traffic on A194(M). You may want to use A19 to travel North whenever possible instead of A1/A194(M).
Travelling from the North via Tyne Tunnel
No traffic changes South of the Tunnel.
More information about the roadworks here
I will update this information when I come back in March.
Hope this helps in your travel.
Please double check traffic on google maps or similar before setting off and leave early to avoid delays to your session.
