£61M upgrade for A1

Roads minister Stephen Ladyman has given the go-ahead to a £61M upgrade of the A1 between Bramham and Wetherby in west Yorkshire.
The scheme will see 10km of the A1 improved to dual three-lane motorway standard, with construction of a new bridge over the River Wharfe, and replacement of the existing bridges at Wetherby Grange and Walton Road. Work is expected to start in spring 2007 and construction will take approximately 28 months. Ladyman's decision follows a local inquiry held in January and February.
