    the new park + ride scheme is due completion in the autumn but i doubt it will come in on time. nothing ever does in scarborough.
    i would think the roadworks will be in place for some time but its anyones guess how long.
    if you approach from whitby A171 its ok or if from york then at malton head for pickering A169 and come to scarborough on the A170. both these routes are usually pretty clear.

    i dont undestand our local council.
    passed the new p+r site today and among all the diggers,earth graders ect was a gang of blokes building the bloody bus shelters.
    they havnt even leveled the site yet let alone started the substructure of the carpark area.
    what happened to the clerk of works and his schedule of work ??????
    im sure we have idiots for councillors and they just awarded themselves an 8% rise in allowances(maybe not so stupid after all)

    hi rita,
    the works on the A64 should be nearing an end by august but the town is a nightmare at that time anyway.
    the last 3miles or so is the worst for delays. too much traffic trying to get into the bottleneck that is scarborough.
    i think the A165 should be easier unless they are building the new roundabouts at that time.

    i'll try to keep the thread updated.

    john.

    It would appear the A165 is now almost clear of works from osgodby into town.

    the A64 still has some works in progress but at least its two way trafic at the moment.

    the A64 staxton works are now completed.

    john
