Route

The A1130 crosses the River Tees via the Victoria Bridge

The A1130 is an urban A-road on Teesside.

The road starts at traffic lights at the southern corner of the A1305 Stockton-on-Tees ring road, where it also meets the A135. It heads east to cross the River Tees at the Victoria Bridge to enter Thornaby and its one-way system. Eastbound traffic continues straight ahead to a roundabout alongside the A66 but with no access to that road. Westbound traffic runs from here alongside the A66 to a dumbbell interchange with west-facing sliproads, before running north to complete the loop. The Darlington to Middlesbrough railway line is crossed whilst the road is one-way.

From the roundabout, the A1130 runs eastwards alongside the A66 - both roads here are now dual-carriageway. The next roundabout serves the B6541 which leads to the eastbound onslip, whereas the A1130 turns right to cross the A66 to meet the westbound offslip at traffic lights. We now head southeastwards past a golf course and cemetery to a roundabout GSJ on the A19.

The A1130 splits at the next roundabout, with the road forking left along Levick Crescent or right along Mandale Road. Both enter the Middlesbrough suburb of Acklam to end on the A1032: the left at a T-junction; the right at traffic lights.

History

The original route of the A1130

All that the present A1130 has in common with its original route is the short length of Levick Crescent in Acklam.

In 1922 the road east of Stockton was numbered A176 (later renumbered A67 and then A66), whilst the A174 ran from Thornaby into Acklam (and beyond), the two roads joining at the current A1130/B6541 junction.

Later in the 1920s the B1271 number was allocated to the road from the A174 in Acklam to the A176 west of Middlesbrough town centre; when Newport Bridge was built in 1934 the classified road was extended to the A1046 and renumbered A1130. This was later extended north to join the A19 near Norton.

Upgrades of the road network on Teesside has altered the A1130 completely. The Norton extension is now part of the A19 mainline, whilst most of the remainder of the 1930s road has been taken over by the A1032. This road has a different route through Acklam, however, and so Levick Crescent remains numbered A1130.

At the same time the A66 and A174 were also rerouted, so the A1130 took on their old routes west from Acklam into Stockton, giving the road its current status.
