We've allocated up to £38m for improvements to the A1237 York Outer Ring Road (YORR) in order to reduce congestion, using funds from the West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund*.
Construction at the Clifton Moor roundabout is scheduled to begin late summer 2019, and is expected to be completed by late 2020.

The blueprint for improving capacity at all York Outer Ring Road roundabouts is based on providing:
- three-lane entries on the ring road approaches to the roundabout, and
- two-lane exits
This will provide an increase in the junction capacity similar to those implemented at the A59, A19 and Wetherby Road roundabouts. The Clifton Moor roundabout will also include adding a fourth arm to the junction extending northwards to the identified site for housing allocation in the draft Local Plan.
The decision on the final road layout will be made at a public Executive Member for Transport and Planning Decision Session meeting.
