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 Wigginton Road roundabout is scheduled to begin late summer 2019, and is expected to be completed by late 2020.

Proposed improvements to the Wigginton Road junction
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 junction capacity similar to those implemented on the A59, A19 and Wetherby Road roundabouts.
The decision on the final road layout will be made at a public Executive Member for Transport and Planning Decision Session meeting.
