Route

The A194(M) looking north

The A194(M) links junction 65 of the A1(M) to the A184 and A194 which both run east to join the A19 road to the Tyne Tunnel.

The road opened as the A194(M). However, some time after the Tyne Tunnel was built the decision was taken to route the A1 away from the middle of Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne and on this more easterly route, so the A194(M) became part of the A1(M), and the A1 turned off onto what is now the A184, and the A19 through the Tyne Tunnel to what is now the A19/A1 junction at Wide Open near Cramlington.

However in the late 1980s the decision was taken to extend the Gateshead Western Bypass to bypass Newcastle upon Tyne as well; this then became the third major route of the A1 through Tyneside. As a consequence the A194(M) number was returned to the motorway. The road is therefore in the unusual position of being renumbered, then renumbered again to the original number.

Special Features

  • Look out for the butterfly sign which marks the split of the A1(M) and A194(M).
  • Despite the A1(M) receiving junction numbers in the 1990s, the A194(M)'s two junctions remained unnumbered until 2013.
