We’re currently developing plans to carry out improvements on the A64 at Hopgrove junction to Barton-le-Willows.
We’re developing plans to improve the A64 around the Hopgrove junction to Barton-le-Willows, to tackle problems with the current route and to make sure it’s fit for the future.
This scheme is one of over 30 that we’re considering around the country, as part of a steady and flexible pipeline of schemes. These pipeline schemes were announced in our 2020-25 Delivery Plan. We’ll be considering these for potential construction beyond 2025, but currently there’s no commitment from government to develop this scheme beyond the current stage. To find out more about our pipeline of possible future schemes please visit our pipeline schemes webpage.

Through this scheme we aim to bring significant benefits to Yorkshire and the UK. We are developing plans to improve the A64 Hopgrove junction and dualling between Hopgrove and Barton-le-Willows. This will help to cut congestion along the A64 now, and as the roads become busier in the future, which will:
- Make life easier for businesses, commuters and local traffic – making quicker, smoother journeys for jobs and leisure.
- Support a growing economy and foster local regeneration.
It’ll also improve safety – reducing vehicle accidents and collisions, and the delays these can cause.
We’ll make sure that we minimise the impact of our scheme on people, plants, animals and other natural assets.
