National Highways have published an updated brochure on their proposals for the A66 upgrade. Here is the link to the A66 NTP winter update website:
The link takes you to the winter update brochure, which summarises the key changes to the scheme since their autumn 2021 consultation. There is also a consultation summary report, which gives you details of the consultation, how many people took part and the feedback they received on their developing designs.
National Highways have issued a leaflet (link below) to local residents suggesting that they have made some amendments to their preferred route where they are looking to make changes to two parts of the route: “the western section of route local to Sandford junction and central section in the vicinity of Moor Beck.” The leaflet does not include any plans or route drawings, which is not exactly helpful. The consultation lasts from 28th January to 25th February.
There is a National Highways consultation drop-in at Warcop Parish Hall on Monday 7th February 3 – 7pm and on Tuesday 8th February from 8 – 2pm.
Here is a link to the leaflet in case you have not seen it:
Without knowing what their amendments to the western and central routes are, it is hard to comment, but we urge all residents to attend the consultation at the Parish Hall, then submit their responses either online or via paper copies.
What concerns both Warcop Parish Council and Musgrave Parish Council is the suggestion that the eastern route from Warcop to Brough may not have been changed at all.
