Highways Agency’s green road upgrade

The Highways Agency is upgrading of the road surface on the A1 between Swainby Lane and Theakston Grange in North Yorkshire by reusing old road as the new surface.

The work will take place just south of Leeming Bar services between the 19th of November and the 1st of December.

Highways Agency Project Sponsor, Steve Bishop, said: “We are working environmentally by re-using the some of the old road we are digging up, re-heating it and using it for the new surface. This is cost-effective for the taxpayer and it reduces both the amount of waste material produced and new material required.

“This work is part of the Highways Agency's ongoing commitment to improving our roads. We always do our best to keep disruption to a minimum, which is why we are undertaking work at night.”
