A64 Rillington Bypass
Part of our programme of improvements (value >10m)
What is the proposal?
We have proposed the development of a bypass of Rillington village, which gets particularly congested during the busy summer holiday period. The bypass would start to the east of Scagglethorpe, passing north of Rillington Fields, crossing the existing A64 near West Field and heading west towards Collinson Lane. It would then run parallel to Sands Lane, crossing Wintringham Road to the north of Scampston Mill Farm, before rejoining the A64 immediately to the east of Scampston Bridge.
What is the story so far?
We were given approval to develop of a bypass of Rillington village by Roads Minister, David Jamieson and held an exhibition to show the proposed options in the village in November 2000.
In July 2006, the Government accepted the recommendations of the interim Regional Transport Board for the Yorkshire and Humberside, which did not identify this scheme as a funding priority in the period up to 2016.
What is the current situation?
In May 2012, the Government announced a series of schemes which would be developed to enable potential construction in the next Spending Review. This scheme was not selected and no work is currently being undertaken by the Highways Agency.
