A164 and Jock's Lodge road improvement schemeThu 7th May 2020
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, as well as two new roads. One will travel northbound and the other southbound to 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.
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.
