Project information


The A66 is a major A-road stretching from the north-east to the north-west of England. Linking the A19, A1, and the M6.

These are essential in maintaining the network, keeping our customers safe and supporting the movement of essential supplies and services. While there are several projects planned along this stretch of the A66, we’re working together to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

It provides not only a route for tourism and lorries moving goods across the country; but it is also essential for local traffic accessing the county’s many towns and villages.

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