A64 Roadworks Start at Staxton

A64 Roadworks Start at Staxton

Published by Matthew Pells at 6:02am 9th September 2019.

Overnight roadworks on a busy A64 junction get underway this evening.

The work aims to improve safety for drivers and pedestrians at the busy Staxton Crossroads junction at the bottom of Staxton Hill.

The A64 approach to the traffic lights is to be modified with the addition of two traffic islands to help guide approaching traffic into the correct lanes

There will also be new crossing facilities for pedestrians at Old Malton Road and Wood Lane

The work will be carried out weeknights only, between 9pm and 6am. There will be temporary traffic lights overnight and Staxton Willerby Road will be closed.

The work is expected to take around three weeks.

Highways England project manager Michael Hoult said:

"These improvements are part of our wider investment being carried out along the A64 over the next financial year to improve congestion and safety for drivers as well as pedestrians and cyclists.

We're installing two traffic islands on the A64 where vehicles approach the junction's traffic lights. These will help to guide approaching traffic into the correct lanes, reducing the need for people to change lanes close to the junction.

We're also installing new crossing facilities for pedestrians at Old Malton Road and Wood Lane and extending the pedestrian guardrail to the east of Staxton Willerby Road."
