A57 M1 to Todwick Crossroads

Scheme outline

Upgrade of the existing A57 from single to dual carriageway between M1 J31 and Todwick crossroads (A57/B6463 junction). The improvements will start at a point 400 m to the east of J31, where the current dual carriageway ends. The Todwick crossroads will be replaced by a five-arm roundabout.

The aims of this scheme are to improve safety (this road has dangerous bends and a poor accident record), and increase capacity.
