CYCLISTS will benefit from road improvements along the A59 Boroughbridge Road from Beckfield Lane to the A59/A1237 roundabout.

The York Council works will help to connect existing cycle ways with the new park and ride site at Poppleton.

A lane will be closed to inbound traffic from the A59/A1237 roundabout from 9.30am to 3.30pm until Friday, May 30.

The aim is to link the existing facilities to the cycle ways built alongside the new Poppleton park and ride.

Riders should start enjoying the benefits from early next month.
