After an A68 section collapsed last month, Bear Scotland led repairs that included rebuilding to road level using three phases. Temporary traffic lights have also been removed so finishing work such as kerbing, footpath construction and drainage clearance can take place uninterrupted.
Scientists still are uncertain where megaberg A68 will end up floating, although one possibility could be South Georgia in British Overseas Territory of Overseas Territories, which has become home for many of the larger tabular icebergs that ground themselves and gradually dissolve over time. Leeds University researchers used satellite data to track how its shape changed as it moved northward, ultimately discovering that by its end, enough depth had been shed off its keel for it to remain floating.
Be it for a weekend trip with the family or simply getting to work on time, getting caught in traffic jams can add time and stress to any journey. Our RAC traffic news can help by showing what is happening along your chosen route.
The A66 is an important road in northern England connecting Penrith and Scotch Corner in Cumbria with Thirsk and Malton in North Yorkshire. Ministers recently revealed their preferred option for upgrading single carriageway sections of this route between 2023-2025 into dual carriageways.
The preferred option features a three mile bypass between Penrith and Temple Sowerby and five miles of dualling from Brough to Appleby, along with the addition of a new overbridge for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders near West View Farm in the AONB and improvements at Kemplay Bank Junction.
The A63 is an important north English road, running between Leeds and Kingston upon Hull as part of the national road network and serving both urban and rural areas. It is heavily trafficked on Saturday mornings.
Drivers on an A63 Clive Sullivan Way near Hull city centre have become confused over its speed limit. Two signs within yards of each other offer conflicting advice regarding speed limits: 50mph for single carriageways and 70mph for dual carriageways.
