More Roadworks for A64 in Run Up to Christmas

A64 Dual Carriageway

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.”
