New Pledge on A64 Dualling

New Pledge on A64 Dualling

There's been a promise on the dualling on the A64.

It's come from Transport Minister Andrew Stephenson, in response to a question in the House of Commons yesterday.

Filey MP, Kevin Hollinrake, raised it in Transport Questions  and this was the answer from the minister.

Kevin Hollinrake:

"Will the Minister confirm his commitment to investment right across the north—not just the big projects, such as northern powerhouse rail, from the east coast through the west coast, but the smaller but no less important projects, such as the dualling of the A64 in my constituency?"

Andrew Stephenson 

"I am happy to provide my hon. Friend with that reassurance. The integrated rail plan is looking at various transport investments in the north, and we very much intend that still to report by the end of this year. On the dualling of the A64, I can assure him that that is now officially in the road investment strategy 3 pipeline, and it will be investigated carefully as we prepare to make decisions for the next strategy."

In the Budget earlier in the year, it was revealed a plan to dual the stretch of the A64 between the Hopgrove roundabout heading east towards Malton wasn't to take place as soon as was hoped.

It's now thought it would take place in 2025-26.
