The Government has promised a record multi-million pound payout to improve roads in our region.
£489 million will be spent on roads in Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire between 2015 and 2021, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin announced today.
The investment amounts to £81 million a year, enough to fix around 1.5 million potholes across the region.
It is the first time councils have been given dedicated funding over this length of time.
The A64 is closed both ways due to an accident between B1249 Beverley Gate (Staxton Bank) and B1248 York Road.
