A684 Bedale Bypass 16 August 2016

Construction of a new single two-lane road bypassing Bedale, Leeming Bar and Aiskew, and linking to the new A1(M) upgrade.

For a number of years the scheme was held up for financial reasons, and the initial plan to open the road at the same time as the adjoining new motorway did not come to pass. It is instead being built at the same time as the next phase of the A1(M) works.

As well as relieving Bedale town centre, the bypass will improve access to the motorway from Northallerton and the Dales.
