Although not in Coxhoe Parish this will have a huge effect on us. Planning application 18/01597 has been lodged for a 4 storey high 1.8 million square feet, distribution warehouse that plans to open March 2020 operating 24 hours a day with 2,000 FTE employees. It will also lead to 2 new roundabouts on the A688.
These will be off the current carriageway and delays will be kept to a minimum only whilst the current carriageway is joined on to them. These roadworks will start in the Autumn. Durham County Council will also start works on Junction 61 of the A1M to introduce lights to all junctions and widen them from A668, Bowburn and Parkhill onto the roundabouts will all be 3 lanes on and two lanes off, which should hugely improve traffic flows. Works are planned to start in the new year. Details of the planning application for the Integra warehouse are available on Durham County Council website or via this link.
You can find out more about the development in the recent edition of The Bowburn Interchange.
The July 2018 edition of the Coxhoe Chronicle is now available on line.
