Cyclists and walkers along the A64 will benefit from £1.3 million of safety improvements thanks to a special Highways England fund, the Harrogate Advertiser reports.
The two major schemes are being carried out at Tadcaster Bar and Musley Bank, and the projects have been developed to provide ‘more attractive, safe, accessible and integrated cycling facilities’.
Highways England project manager Chris Dunn said this week: “We’re committed to significantly improving safety across our road network, and the new and improved cycle and footpaths will make it much easier and safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
“We are also looking at what further improvements can be made over the next 12 months along this important route.”
Both schemes are due to be completed by the end of March.
