Information about the consultation for Consultation for Burtersett (Mire Bank Lane) and A684 junction.

The Safer Roads Fund was established by the Department for Transport to provide road safety improvements on the 50 highest risk local A Roads in England. We have successfully bid, and have been approved funding for the following locations:

  • A167 Topcliffe to Busby Stoop
  • A6108 from Ripon to Scotch Corner
  • A684 from Leeming Bar to junction 37of the M6
  • A682 Barrowford to A65 at Long Preston

The original bid documents can be viewed here.

The A684 bid comprised of a number of works proposals including:

  • Hawes Town Centre
  • Various junction improvements
  • Layby improvements
  • Road marking improvements
  • Drainage works
  • Improvements to Traffic Signals                                

This proposal is to address the concern of the turning manoeuvre from the road to Burtersett (Mire Bank Lane) on to the A684.  This is deemed to be a potential hazard due to the angle that the road adjoins the A684, which severely affects the visibility of vehicles.
