Over £22m To Be Invested In Yorkshire Coastal Route

Construction News Image
Highways England has announced an investment of more than £22 million over the next 12 months in a major Yorkshire coastal route to improve journeys and safety for the thousands of drivers who use it every day.

Resurfacing, drainage, junction upgrades as well as major safety improvements are being planned for the A64 between the A1(M) at Bramham and Seamer in Scarborough.

Around 25 schemes are being carried out along the 55-mile route including safety improvements at Crambeck and Rillington between now and the end of March next year.

Highways England project manager Chris Dunn said: "We are carrying out a series of improvements along the A64 between the A1(M) and Seamer over the next 12 months which will provide better journeys for drivers and improved road safety.

"These include major safety improvements at Crambeck and Rillington which are being funded as part of our safety designated funds. It also includes further improvements for cyclists along the route as well some junction improvements making it easier for people to access caravan sites in the area.

"The majority of the work is being carried out from September onwards to avoid the summer months when traffic is at its heaviest, although we do need to start some overnight resurfacing work prior to that between Headley Bar and Hopgrove roundabout from Monday 19 August."

This work is part of Highways England’s £80m maintenance improvements on Yorkshire’s roads this year providing drivers with smoother and safer journeys.

The resurfacing work between Headley Bar and Hopgrove roundabout begins this year’s investment along the route. It also includes replacing the road markings, reflective road studs and kerbing. The work will be carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am.

Some of the projects along the A64 have also been developed as part of Highways England’s cycling, safety and integration designated fund. This is a special fund of £250m to be spent between 2015 and 2021, helping address barriers caused by our road network, providing a more accessible, inclusive and integrated network that gives people the freedom to choose their mode of transport.

Residents, drivers, businesses and tourists will also be able to find out more about this investment and further details about the schemes by talking to one of the project team at the following locations:

• Friday 16 August at Staxton Village Hall, Wain’s Lane, Staxton, YO12 4SF between 3pm and 7pm

• Thursday 22 August at RNLI Lifeboat Station forecourt, West Pier, Foreshore Road, Scarborough, YO11 1PB between 10am and 4pm

• Friday 30 August Rillington Village, Hall High Street, Rillington, YO17 8LH between 3pm and 7pm.
