Work to begin on A64 blackspot

Have your say

SAFETY work is to begin on an accident blackspot on the A64 York to Scarborough road after years of campaigning.

North Yorkshire Coroner Michael Oakley, Anne McIntosh, the Conservative MP for Thirsk, Malton and Filey, and Cllr Clare Wood have been leading the calls for work to improve Barton crossroads which has been the scene of a catalogue of serious accidents in recent years.

Now the Highways Agency has announced it has secured £212,000 to install new safety measures, with the work expected to be completed by March 2013.
