Flaxby A59 Roundabout

JPG was appointed to design and manage the delivery of a £5 million highways project to include a new roundabout and provide extra lanes on the A59 at Flaxby to serve the new £100 million Flaxby Country Resort and gateway business park.

The brief also included preparation of land for the future widening of the A59 and A1(M) junction slip roads to facilitate new access to the five-star luxury hotel and golf course. Historically this part of the A59 was an accident black spot and JPG’s involvement was integral to the removal of this risk.

The widening of the A59 and the geometric arrangement for the large roundabout proved to be particularly challenging when considering the existing rural surrounding area of North Yorkshire.
