Scheme Outline

Upgrade of the existing substandard A66 route from Scotch Corner on the A1 to the County Durham border. The scheme is broken into two sections, Scotch Corner to Carkin Moor and Greta Bridge to Stephen Bank. It is likely that the road will be upgraded to dual two-lane all-purpose, but will not be grade-separated.

Progress

14 June 2006 Work is scheduled to begin shortly on the section between Scotch Corner and the County Durham border.
14 July 2006 Work has started on dualling the section between Scotch Corner and Greta Bridge.
14 September 2007 Work is complete and the new roads are open.

It's over!
