A67 could be closed for up to 18 months following landslip

Darlington Borough Council (DBC) has confirmed that the A67 at Lower Carlbruy could be closed for up to 18 months while repairs to a landslide, which started in March, are carried out.

Halcrow has been appointed by the council to undertake detailed work to assess the landslip and the possible options for repair.

DBC has said that it does not believe the road closure will remain in place for the full 18 months of the Traffic Regulation Order but cannot confirm the length of closure until Hacrow completes its report in September.  “At this stage it has not been established whether the road will be closed for this length of time until further ground investigation works have been completed,” said the council in a statement. “However, it is likely that this closure and diversion will be in place for some time.”
