A LONG TALKED-about proposal to upgrade the Jock’s Lodge junction on the A164 in Beverley is one of 86 road schemes which the Government has announced will be started as soon as possible – the vast majority will see construction work start by the end of 2023, it says.

The Government has also confirmed it’s in early discussions with East Riding Council as one of 38 local authorities throughout the country where investment zones could be established.
