This area will have dedicated signage with zones A-I along with better lighting to improve public safety. Please do not pre-arrange to meet at zones as some will open/close dependent on volumes of people and traffic.

A64 ONE WAY SYSTEM ON SUNDAY/MONDAY

As per 2019, there will be a one-way system effective on the Sunday evening and Monday. The previous one way system on the A64 (York Road) on the Thursday has been removed.

On Sunday 30th and Monday 31st August, the A64 between the Fox and Grapes public house and the A1(M) / A64 roundabout will be closed to all traffic travelling eastbound (i.e. from Leeds to York).

The one way system will run from 21:00pm on Sunday 30th until Monday 31st August. It is anticipated that by 3pm, all traffic will resume as normal.
