Traffic News
A new roundabout is set to be built on one of the region's busiest roads.

The £4.2m scheme will see an improved junction lay-out on the A164 between Kirk Ella and Swanland.

Councillor Julie Abraham says "We raised the issue of road safety at this junction with council officers in the summer and were informed that while a scheme had been prepared there was no funding for it to go ahead. Many of our residents from Swanland, North Ferriby, Melton and Welton use this junction on a daily basis and have become increasingly fearful at having to pull out onto a busy road with a 60mph speed limit. This is fantastic news."

Councillor Vanessa Walker says "With the increased number of houses being built both in our ward and in the surrounding area, things were only going to get worse at this junction. At peak times trying to exit Great Gutter Lane or sitting in the middle of the road to enter it is very scary and we know many people that avoid the manoeuvre at such times. Obtaining the funding to make this improvement is down to the hard work of our officers and we know that our residents will be very grateful"
