View plans to cut congestion on outer ring road roundabout

by admin on 4 May, 2018

City of York Council is sharing it’s proposals to cut congestion and journey times on the A1237.

Residents and businesses have until Friday 1 June to view and comment on designs to upgrade the outer ring road’s Monks Cross roundabout. This will be the second of seven A1237 roundabouts set for major improvements over the next four years, with the council starting work on the Wetherby Road junction this summer.

York Outer Ring Road has received £38 million investment through the West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund. This is part of Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growth Deal – a £1 billion package of government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.

The roundabout upgrades will mean more lanes and space on the approaches and exits. Where possible the road layouts will be designed to accommodate the potential future scheme to bring the outer ring road up to dual carriageway standard.

The Monks Cross roundabout improvement works are planned for early 2019, although some site clearance work could start earlier.

Plans can be viewed online at, at the council’s West Offices on Station Rise, YO1 6GA, or at two special public exhibitions at Monks Cross Shopping Centre management suite (in the corner by New Look) between 1 and 6pm on Tuesday 8 May and Tuesday 22 May.

If you require any assistance in providing your consultation response, or if you would like to know more information, then your Huntington & New Earswick Liberal Democrat Councillors will be more than happy to help – please email either, or
