More Roadworks for A64 in Run Up to Christmas
6:12pm 29th October 2014
We're being promised £5.3 million of improvements on the A64 in North Yorkshire but will have to put up with roadworks.
There are plans for evening and weekend closures in the run-up to Christmas as resurfacing takes place on the road.
Work will take place on the A64 at:
- Bramham and Headley Bar
- Grimston and Hopgrove (eastbound)
- Tadcaster and Bilbrough
- A64 Staxton roundabout and Seamer roundabout
- and the Seamer bypass
Highways Agency North East Regional Director, Vanessa Gilbert, said:
“This is really good news for road users across Yorkshire because it will ultimately mean more reliable journey times and improved safety. Record amounts are being invested in roads – that inevitably means more roadworks, but for every scheme we work on there will be an improvement for drivers."
“We are well aware of how frustrating drivers find roadworks – but I would like to reassure everyone that all our work is planned very carefully to cause as little disruption as possible. Some is inevitable – and we ask for drivers’ cooperation while the improvements are carried out.”
