It is with sadness that the Yorkshire Local Councils Associations have learned of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh and we extend heartfelt condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family.
A1(M) Junction 47 Upgrade
We understand that some major roadworks are planned for the A1/A59/A168 junction commencing 4th January and expected to last over 3 months, involving the closure of the exit slip road for at least some of that period. This will inevitably lead to an increase in traffic through Rufforth as an alternative route into York from the A1.
The Parish Council have been in contact with Yorwaste who may have to divert some of their vehicles through the village during this period. This is in line with the terms in our Operating Agreement with them, which allows for lorries through the village at times of road closure. Yorwaste have committed to keeping this to an absolute minimum and the Parish Council will be liaising closely with them during the time that these works are taking place.
