Scarborough MP Backs A64 Dualling

Scarborough MP Backs A64 Dualling

Scarborough's MP says the A64 is a victim of its own success when it comes to being dualled.

We told you last week how Robert Goodwill and MP for Filey, Kevin Hollinrake, met the Transport Secretary Grant Schapps and Minister for Roads Baroness Vere.

They urged them to lobby Highways England, which has done a U-turn on the scheme.

The agency now considers it to be 'low value for money', as it will cost more than was thought.

Robert says it can still happen, even though it's expected the agency will announce which roads get funding in November.

He's been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke..
