The A164 (Beverley to Humber Bridge) and the A1079 (Hull to York) are two of the busiest roads in the East Riding.
They meet at the ‘Jock’s Lodge Junction’ just outside Beverley (near Morrisons).
Despite work being carried out over the years to improve the safety of the junction, congestion issues have worsened, and the only solution is a major road improvement scheme.Scheme detailsTimescales Layouts and visuals
In the Government’s 2016 Autumn Statement, it was announced that East Riding of Yorkshire Council had been awarded feasibility funding from the Department for Transport's Large Local Major Schemes Fund to develop a transport improvement scheme for the A164 and Jock's Lodge junction. It was one of only 12 proposals across England to receive feasibility funding.
This funding was used to develop an ‘Outline Business Case’, which set out a preferred scheme option and explained how this could be delivered and whether it would offer good value for money. This was submitted to the Department for Transport in December 2017.
In May 2018 it was announced that the scheme had successfully secured over £40 million construction funding from the Department for Transport with the remainder of the scheme costs being funded by the council.
In Autumn of 2022, the Government affirmed funding support for the scheme in both the Growth Plan and the Autumn Statement.
The Full Business Case has now been submitted to the Department for Transport
A public consultation on a shortlist of potential scheme options was held in November 2017. East Riding of Yorkshire Council used the results of this public consultation, combined with economic data and traffic modelling, to develop a preferred scheme for Jock's Lodge and the A164.
Further public information events were held in February 2020 in order to update residents on the current scheme design and to gather feedback in advance of planning submission in March 2020.
This feedback can be accessed online on the Public Access planning website, using the planning application number ‘20/01073/STPLF’ in your search.
