On Sunday 25th and Monday 26th August, the A64 between the Fox and Grapes public house and the A1(M) / A64 roundabout will be closed to all traffic travelling eastbound (i.e. from Leeds to York).

The vehicle turning point is at the Red Bus Layby on the A64, all vehicles travelling eastbound will be required to perform a U-turn at this point, in a traffic managed zone, there will be no points for stopping here.

The one way system will run from 9pm on Sunday 25th until Monday 26th August. It is anticipated that by 3pm, all traffic will resume as normal.
