A59 Blubberhouses Bypass Project

They are just roughing in the alternative route, which tracks to the North of the existing Kex Gill road, which keeps slipping into the Beck. It’s going to take another 2 years. Here’s the start.

I hope to post updates as the project wears on. Now if only they could find a way to bypass the whole of Harrogate, which for 60 years I have only experienced as a rude interruption in the passage between Lancashire and York. BTW the Mini 3 was struggling to make headway into the wind up the valley, though there was no wind where I was on the North Moor Road to West End.


Oh yes !
