Darlington residents to choose new name for Eastern Transport Corridor

Darlington Borough Council is calling on residents to help name the Darlington Eastern Transport Corridor.

The Darlington Eastern Transport Corridor, which links Haughton Road with the A66, has helped to reduce congestion and has unlocked land for housing and business development.

Nick Wallis, Darlington Borough Council’s cabinet member for transport, said: “Darlington Eastern Transport Corridor has been a working title for far too long.

“This road was the most important one to be built in Darlington for many years and we want to recognise this with a suitable name.

“We are asking people to come forward with relevant suggestions. Themes could be anything from the railways to our links with the wool industry or the more recent wildflowers that have sprung up in the area.

“We are open to suggestions – polite and printable ones of course!”

Early suggestions for the road include Wildflower Way, 1825 Way and Commerce Way.

The most suitable suggestions will be put forward to the naming committee, which will then select the top three. These will then be opened to a public vote. Email your suggestions to economic.projects@darlington.gov.uk.
