As constituents will be aware, I have been leading a campaign to dual the A64 since I was elected in 2015. Since then, I have been working with Highways England and the A64 Growth Partnership on this, as well as meeting with transport ministers on countless occasions.
I would now like to make constituents aware the following Highways England survey.
The purpose of the survey is to garner residents' feedback on the A64 between Hopgrove Junction and Barton-le-Willows. I'd encourage all constituents to take part.
The deadline for the survey is Sunday 21 November.
This is part of a feedback process on the range of options to improve the Hopgrove roundabout and to create a dual carriageway to join the existing dual carriageway. I will be keeping in touch with developments at every stage of its development and offering whatever help I can and will continue to press the case for dualling with officials and ministers.
The options include an upgrade at Hopgrove to include a single elongated signalised roundabout in conjunction with one of three proposed dual carriageway schemes. These are either from a point 500m north of Hopgrove roundabout to Jinnah Restaurant or one of two offline schemes which would take the dual carriageway away from the current road via either the FERA estate or close to Scotchman’s junction and back onto the A64 at the Jinnah restaurant.
I will continue to campaign for this much needed improvement because it will bring huge benefits to the region through greater investment, productivity and economic growth.
