Major Safety Improvements Continue Along The A64

Major safety improvements are continuing along the A64.

Improvements to footpaths, drainage, safety barriers and road surfaces are underway as part of a £22 million investment.

The Highways England work which is taking place at Staxton and Malton along the A64 will enhance journeys for the thousands of drivers who use the route every day and improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

Work to improve safety for drivers and pedestrians at Staxton crossroads has also been taking place over the last few weeks and is expected to be completed by Friday 11th October.

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’ve linked three schemes together to provide a continuous and safer route for pedestrians and cyclists between Staxton and Dunslow Road at Eastfield.

This work is due to get underway on Monday 7 October and finish in March next year.

On Monday 10 October we’ll also start resurfacing work around Dunslow roundabout and towards Eastfield, which will provide drivers with smoother and safer journeys. This will be completed by the end of the month.

We’ve also started work around Malton to upgrade a footpath near to High Hutton, renew lengths of safety barrier at Low Hutton and near to the River Derwent, and to improve drainage on Malton Bypass.

All of which is all part of our investment along the A64.” 

To carry out most of the work there will be lane closures and temporary traffic lights in place overnight between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday.

The eastbound carriageway will also be fully closed between Pickering Interchange and Brambling Fields in late November and early December, and will be planned around North Yorkshire County Council’s work at Norton and Pickering Interchange.

Seamer Bypass will also be closed during the resurfacing work which is expected to last for around two weeks.
