Durham County Council has introduced a new system called One Network that makes Road Closure and Diversion information available to residents, businesses and motorists via the web on your mobile phone, tablet and computer as well as through the Sat Nav system in your vehicle. Click on the email icon on the left top of the page and register an account either as a private individual, business person etc from the drop down list.
As well as using the searchable list, the One Network mapping system can be used to check live information regarding road works in your area. To do this you simply type the address in the search bar and select the period of time you are interested in (Today, 2 weeks, 3 months, 12 months).
Another useful feature is the ‘Alerts’ feature which allows you to receive email alerts within in defined area every time new road or street works are recorded. You can set the system to tell you only if the works are high, medium or low impact and choose to receive email notifications daily, weekly or monthly. Simply register with One Network and select select your preferences.
In addition to the above, the One Network system can provide you with a whole host of additional information with new information being added frequently.
For further information on how to set up your account and receive email alerts please watch the YouTube videos below.
