MAJOR safety improvements are being carried out along the A64 to help provide drivers with better and safer journeys.

Highways England will start work between Crambeck and Welburn in March as part of a £22 million investment along the A64.

The four-month project will include widening the carriageway, creating right turn lanes, introducing five new traffic islands and footpath, and improving the layout of junctions.

Highways England project manager Chris Dunn said: “This vital work will improve safety for drivers using the A64. The improvements are part of our wider investment to enhance journeys and safety for the thousands of people who use this route every day.”
