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.
This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
Work is scheduled to begin shortly on the section between Scotch Corner and the County Durham border.
Work has started on dualling the section between Scotch Corner and Greta Bridge.
Work is complete and the new roads are open.
