Project information


The A19 is a major A-road stretching from the Thirsk in North Yorkshire to Northumberland. Linking with the A1, and the A168.

These are essential in maintaining the network, keeping our customers safe and supporting the movement of essential supplies and services.

It provides not only a route for tourism and lorries moving goods up the east coast of the country; but it is also essential for local traffic accessing the many towns and villages along the route.

This year we are investing more than £135 million across the North East and Yorkshire in schemes that will improve and maintain our roads.
