Progress report

The A1 Redhouse to Darrington and A1(M) Doncaster bypass are two of several of schemes identified in the government’s Road Investment Strategy for 2015-20, for development in the current Roads Period 1, for potential delivery in Roads Period 2 (2020-25), subject to funding being available. We're at a very early stage of developing the A1 M18 to M62 scheme and development work is under way to consider available options, costs, benefits and potential phasing of the schemes for delivery.

We're now beginning a range of surveys and assessment work to give us information about traffic volumes and the local environment. This information will help us explore different design options that would meet our aims for the project.

We're also beginning discussions with local authorities and technical stakeholders so we can take their views into account.

Find out more about our ecological surveys by reading the fact sheet in the documents section of this page.

What's next?

We're continuing our investigations and working on options.

Why we need this scheme

Currently the route is congested, especially on weekday mornings and evenings, and has a number of local road accesses between Redhouse and Darrington. The number of accidents recorded on this route is higher than the national average.

In 2015, a number of packages were developed to improve the section of the A1 between Redhouse and Darrington to provide safety benefits, and in some instances, additional capacity at junctions. In total, nine laybys were closed to improve safety for drivers.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:

  • relieve congestion
  • improve journey time variability
  • reduce the number of accidents and casualties
  • support regeneration and the regional economy
  • complement other improvements to the strategic road network in the region
  • improve, as far as possible, environment and to ensure that impacts on people, fauna, flora and other natural assets adjacent to proposals are minimised
