From The Yorkshire Times.
A £3m package of work is planned for a 10-mile stretch of the A64 near York which will improve the journeys for the thousands of drivers who use it every day.
Resurfacing, drainage, bridge maintenance and upgrading of traffic signals are just some of the work being carried out between Bramham and Grimston Bar.
The work is part of Highways England’s £80m maintenance improvements on Yorkshire’s roads this year providing drivers with smoother and safer journeys. Over the year over 207 miles of lanes will be resurfaced, using over 100,000 tonnes of material. That’s the same as resurfacing one lane of the M1 between York and London and 1.5 times the weight of the new HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest aircraft carrier ever built for the Royal Navy.
Highways England project manager Chris Dunn said:
“We are carrying out a series of improvements along the A64 between Bramham and Grimston Bar over the next few months which will provide better journeys for drivers and improve road safety.
