Give way to Mayfield Road works

THE junction at Mayfield Road is going to be improved with a £500,000 scheme.

It is being classed as a major scheme by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) which will see the junction re-modelled.

The traffic lights will remain and the pedestrian crossing near the old railway bridge will be re-sited but the works will increase the junction capacity by 20 per cent.

The project is being funded by section 106 monies which usually come from developers to compensate for the loss of open space.
