Route

The section from the A66 to Barnard Castle is primary status;[1] from that point it turns right and it loses its primary status to the A688 road.[2] It then travels east through Gainford and crosses the A1(M) but does not have a junction with it.[3] The road regains primary status as it goes concurrent with the A66 road from the Blackwell roundabout and heads along the southern edge of Darlington.[4]

As the A66 heads north, the A67 leaves at Morton Park to head east past Dinsdale and Durham Tees Valley Airport before joining with the A135 in Eaglescliffe. From there it heads south through Yarm and Kirklevington before joining the A19 road at Crathorne.[5]

The road has been described by a UK Government transport minister as an important commuter route and as being the gateway to Teesdale from Darlington.[6] Despite its status as an important route, it is not maintained by Highways England but by the local authority.[7] The section around Darlington and also onwards towards Middlesbrough was originally the A66.[8]

Safety

The 10-mile (16 km) stretch road between the A66 at Morton Park and the A19 was named the third most improved road in 2013. Work on this section included vehicle activated signage, draining and re-surfacing.[9]

The A688 is a road in County Durham in North East England.

There are estimated to be as many as 3,000 DMVs in England. Grid references are given, where known.

Low Coniscliffe

Low Coniscliffe is a village in the civil parish of Low Coniscliffe and Merrybent, in County Durham, England. The population of the civil parish taken at the 2011 Census was 716. It is situated 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Darlington. Its present built-up area is confined in practice between the A1, the A67 and the Tees, but its old boundaries probably extend much further. Its most obvious landmark on the A67 is the Baydale Beck Inn. The village contains a couple of listed buildings and the probable site of a medieval manor house. There was once a gallows in the village. A rare fungus Rhodotus palmatus was found nearby.

Merrybent

Merrybent is a linear village in the civil parish of Low Coniscliffe and Merrybent in County Durham, in England. It is situated on the A67 road to the west of Darlington, a short distance to the north of the River Tees and the Teesdale Way. At the beginning of the 20th century there were hardly any buildings here, and its main feature at that time was Merrybent Nurseries with its many glasshouses. The nursery was cut through by the A1 road in the 1960s; at this point it runs on the trackbed of the old Merrybent railway. The village is now a settlement of modern housing.

Tees Cottage Pumping Station

Tees Cottage Pumping Station is a Victorian pumping station complex at Broken Scar on the A67 near Low Coniscliffe just west of Darlington. The site dates from 1849, and was built to provide drinking water for Darlington and the surrounding area. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument housing two completely original pumping engines in fully working order: a 1904 beam engine, built by Teasdale Brothers of Darlington, which is still steamed using its original 1902 Lancashire boilers; and a rare 1914 two-cylinder gas internal-combustion engine, the largest such engine surviving in Europe. Both engines can be seen in operation on certain weekends through the year, using their original pumps to pump water from the River Tees, just as they always have done.
