The A164 is a major route serving the south of the East Riding of Yorkshire, west Hull and Beverley. It is also part of our primary route network and has the highest volume of traffic in East Riding, with some sections carrying over 30,000 vehicles a day.
The A1079 is the main route between Hull and York and also connects local settlements including the Beverley, Market Weighton and Pocklington. On the approach to Jock’s Lodge, the A1079 carries around 20,000 vehicles a day.
Jock’s Lodge Junction, where the A1079 and A164 meet, is the busiest junction in the East Riding and forms a pinch point on the local road network. Traffic lights were introduced in 2010 and these have helped to improve the roads safety record at the junction. However, traffic levels continue to increase and this causes severe congestion and long queues along the A164 on the approaches to the junction at busy times.
