MOTORISTS and local residents were today taking a look at plans for a new flyover at Bilbrough Top, on the A64 between York and Tadcaster.

A public exhibition about the £11 million Highways Agency scheme was being staged at the nearby Buckles Inn.

It was giving the timetable for the project and construction details, and a range of maps and diagrams were on display.

Representatives of the agency, design consultants W S Atkins and contractors Birse Civils Ltd were also available to answer questions.

The exhibition was open until 8pm this evening, and can again be visited between 10am and 6pm tomorrow.
