    This year's work

    We’re investing around £5m this financial year (2022-2023), improving journeys and safety for the thousands of drivers who use the A64 every day.


    A64 East Knapton to West Heslerton Surfacing

    Pavement reconstruction, drainage improvements and road marking replacement work is planned on the A64 between East Knapton and West Heslerton.  To allow for the quick and safe repair of the deeper areas of road foundation, work will need to be carried out under a series weekend closures of the A64 as seen over the last 3 years on this route.

    A64 Slip road repairs

    Resurfacing works are planned to improve the condition of the slip roads around Brambling Fields and the Pickering interchange. Work will be carried out overnight under road closures to minimise disruption to customers.

    A64 Seamer Station bridge joint repair

    Replacement of the expansion joints and re-surfacing of the carriageway is planned to help maintain the structure and protect the substructure from deterioration. Work will be carried overnight under a road closure to minimise disruption to customers.

    A64 Flixton Carr Waterproofing

    The renewal of the life-expired bridge deck waterproofing on the bridge carrying the A64 over the River Hertford near Staxton. Work will require a weekend closure of the A64 between Staxton and Seamer to allow the surfacing to be removed, waterproofing system replaced and the carriageway resurfaced. 

    A64 Scampston Hall 

    Phase 2 of the cultural heritage work that we started a few years ago. Work includes repairing and repointing the wall between the A64 and the Scampston Hall estate. Work is likely to be carried out with limited traffic management in spring of 2023.

    A64 Sand Hutton drainage renewal

    Drainage repairs between Hazelbush crossroads and the junction for Sand Hutton. Work will be carried out overnight using traffic signals. 

    A64 Askham Bryan Junction Improvement

    The scheme involves substantial work to improve the capacity of the junction, and to reduce the congestion on the eastbound exit slip road. Work is subject to a number of 3rd party approvals and we expect to start the main work in 2023. In advance of this there will be some major gas diversions required which will likely to be carried out in spring 2023.

    A64 Askham Bryan lighting renewal

    The renewal of a number of life-expired lighting columns and replacement of lighting units with LED lights. Work planned for late autumn and will involve various slip road closures.

    A64 Traffic signal replacement Rillington, Sherburn & Staxton

    We're replacing traffic signals on the A64 in the villages of Rillington, Sherburn & Staxton. The works will involve installing extra low voltage equipment, reducing our carbon footprint and improving the reliability of the traffic lights for road users. We are planning on undertaking this work in late autumn/winter 2022 and will be utilising innovative traffic management to minimise disruption as much as possible

    Much of the work planned along the A64 will avoid the summer holidays this year to ensure we keep disruption to a minimum.
