A1 Rainton Crossroads

Scheme outline

A small scale junction improvement scheme at the dangerous Rainton crossroads. Currently this is a flat junction just a few miles north of the end of the motorway at Dishforth. The A1 here is due to be upgraded to motorway within the next few years anyway, but this junction is seen as such a priority that it is to be grade separated immediately. A flyover will be constructed but the exact layout of the new junction is not yet confirmed.

This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
