A614 junction improvements

Why are we upgrading the A614/A6097 Corridor?

  • reduce congestion and journey times
  • support economic growth
  • support the Strategic Road Network
  • support all road users – pedestrians, cyclists etc
  • improve safety, particularly at Mickledale Lane and Deerdale Lane junctions.

Proposed improvements

Ollerton Roundabout

  • enlarged conventional roundabout – 5 arms instead of 6
  • capacity increases
  • speed limit will be reduced on approaches
  • two toucan crossings
  • estimated cost £7.4 million
  • scheme requires third party land – Via will try to purchase all land by negotiation

Mickledale Lane

  • junction will be signalised
  • motorists exiting Mickledale Lane will see a big reduction in journey delay
  • estimated cost £2.6 million
  • scheme requires third party land – Via will try to purchase all land by negotiation
