Work to a major roundabout in Scarborough has finished.

North Yorkshire County Council has been carrying out upgrades to the A170 Stepney Road and Stepney Drive roundabout.

David Bowe, Corporate Director, Business and Environmental Services, said:

“Improvement work at the A171 Stepney Road/Stepney Drive junction in Scarborough is now complete. 

The work is designed to increase the capacity of the junction and increase pedestrian safety.

This work has been delivered as part of a £4m upgrade to junctions across Scarborough, funded by North Yorkshire County Council, Scarborough Borough Council and the Local Enterprise Partnership, and will support the expected growth across the town in the coming years.

The work involved widening the carriageway to provide short lengths of two-lane approaches from Stepney Drive (north) and Stepney Road (east and west). 

Improvements to the pedestrian dropped kerbs and islands has also been carried out as well as the installation of a puffin crossing. 

We would like to thank contractors Fox (Owmby) Ltd for their work on this project and appreciate the patience of residents and road users while it was being carried out.”

The work to the A170 Stepney Road and Stepney Drive roundabout is part of a £4m plan to improve congestion at four of Scarborough's busy junctions: A170 Stepney Road/Falsgrave Road; A171 Scalby Road/Stepney Drive; and A171 Scalby Road/Manor Road roundabout. The improvements at Scalby Road/Manor Road were completed earlier this year.

The whole project is scheduled to be complete by March 2021.

Earlier this year, North Yorkshire County Council said "it is an investment in the future of Scarborough" and the modifications are "essential to support the proposed growth of the town over the period of the Local Plan up to 2032."
