The Sands Coach Park will close on 12 August 2019, Durham Council has announced.

A temporary 12-space facility will be available at the Belmont Park & Ride facility on the A690, located just off the A1 at junction 62 (postcode DH1 1SR).

It is planned that a new site will be open by the end of September, with facilities for washing coaches and emptying toilets.

Drivers can continue to use the coach drop-off point at Freeman’s Place, where Durham Pointers continue to offer their Meet and Greet service during the summer season, which is bookable by calling 07582 332621 between 0930 and 1530hrs.
