The A68 road

The A68 road, from Darlington to Dalkeith, is an inland alternative to the A1 to reach Edinburgh. It bypasses Corbridge to cross the Tyne, and the northern section is sometimes called "The Carter Bar road", named after the border crossing into Scotland at the Carter Bar.

The section south of Corbridge is mostly the route of the Roman Road "Dere Street".
