A64 Hopgrove to Barton-le-Willows upgrade public consultation launched

July 25, 2022

This week, Julian has written to residents in Stockton-on-the-Forest, Hopgrove, Towthorpe, Earswick and north Huntington to encourage them to engage with the public consultation launched today.

Having successfully campaigned for £25million of investment to dual the A1237 York Outer Ring Road between Rawcliffe and Hopgrove, Julian, alongside neighbouring Members of Parliament Kevin Hollinrake and Robert Goodwill, have been lobbying Government to fund upgrades to the A64 to improve safety, capacity, and journey times.

After much campaigning, National Highways have also recognised the potential of the upgrade and have included the A64 in their pipeline schemes, which are projects they will select from to begin construction from 2025 and beyond.

To help National Highways select from a number of proposed route options to dual the A64, a public consultation will run until September 5. Public responses will help National Highways to understand how the proposed dualling options will impact road users and local communityies, so Julian wants to encourage everyone to participate in the consultation.

For further information, residents can visit a virtual exhibition at: https://highwaysengland.citizenspace.com/he/a64-hopgrove and there will be consultation event at New Earswick Folk Hall on Friday 12 August between 2pm-8pm.

Physical copies of the consultation brochure can be collected from York Explore Library, Museum Street, YO1 7DS and Huntington Library, Garth Road, YO32 9QJ.

Residents can also speak to a member of the National Highways team by calling 0300 470 2164 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Views and comments on the potential routes can be sent to A64hopgrove@nationalhighways.co.uk or FREEPOST A64 Hopgrove.
