Scotswood Interchange is junction 74 on the A1.

Between 1981 and 1983 the preferred route of the Newcastle Western Bypass was to have it following a rather circuitous route via the existing dual carriageway through Derwenthaugh Interchange and Scotswood Bridge and a new section of road north of there. Whilst this route would be fully grade separated it would involve a couple of TOTSOs and require negotiating some tight slip roads. Nonetheless, several designs were produced for the Scotswood area. The main carriageway would be D3 between junctions and D2 through the junctions. The plans suggest Scotswood Bridge would be widened to D3 although there are no details on how this would be achieved.

In 1984 the scheme was modified to provide a new bridge over the tyne at Blaydon rendering any alterations to area north of Scotswood Bridge unnecessary apart from a simple slip road to the revised line of the western bypass.

Various designs from the early 1980s
