Highways England recently held roadshows detailing the possible options in order to gather feedback and local knowledge.

They used this to finalise the route options, which they are now putting to the public.

Mrs Trevelyan said: “I am so pleased there was such a high turnout at the roadshows – the Highways England team found everyone’s local knowledge invaluable, and even changed their proposals to take local insight into account.

“They are now ready to set out the various route options and explain the pros and cons of each. It is vital that everyone now has their say on the route of the dualled A1 and on the junction improvements that are planned. The Highways England team will also be on hand to answer people’s questions about the timeline for works.”

Local events take place at the Northumberland Hall in Alnwick on Friday, November 18 from 12pm to 7pm and Saturday, November 19 from 10am to 5pm; The Maltings in Berwick on Wednesday, November 23 from 11am to 7pm and Bell View in Belford on Saturday, November 26 from 10am to 5pm.
