East Riding of Yorkshire Council has submitted a planning application for its proposals to improve the A164 and the Jock’s Lodge Junction near Beverley.
Subject to planning permission being granted, the council intends to carry out a major overhaul of the road system to replace the junction, which currently links the A164 and the A1079, in order to improve congestion problems on one of the East Riding’s busiest roads.
The project will involve the construction of:
A new roundabout along the A1079 Hull to York road, and the creation of a new road connecting it with the Lincoln Way roundabout on Minster Way in Beverley.
Two new roads, travelling northbound and a southbound, which will connect the new A1079 roundabout with the A164 further south, near Coppleflat Lane, Bentley.
Together these will replace the Jock’s Lodge Junction.
The A164 will also be widened into a dual carriageway between Coppleflat Lane and the Cottingham Castle Road roundabout.
But the A164 will be kept as a single carriageway between Coppleflat Lane and the Victoria Road roundabout in Beverley.
The council unveiled the plans to the public in early February and held exhibitions in Beverley and Cottingham on February 24 and 25, which were attended by more than 450 people.
A dedicated website was also set up to showcase the plans and provide an opportunity for people to have their say through an online feedback form.
Councillor Chris Matthews, the portfolio holder for strategic management at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The council’s plans to improve the A164 and the Jock’s Lodge Junction have been well received by the public and we would like to thank all those who took the time to come along to the public exhibitions or viewed the plans online.
“The feedback we received was vital in helping the council finalise the plans.
“The A164 and the A1079 are two of the busiest roads in the East Riding and the council believes it has come up with the best possible solution to reduce congestion for years to come, and also to keep traffic disruption to a minimum during the construction.”
If planning permission is granted, the council will submit a Full Business Case to the Department for Transport, and if this is approved the scheme could receive construction funding in 2022.
If the scheme progresses as hoped, works could be complete as early as 2025.
