Route

This section of the A1 is currently being upgraded to A1(M) motorway.

Much of the current work will parallel upgrade the existing A1, with a diversion from the existing line of the A1 at Marne Barracks in Catterick. A new junction has been built Catterick Central Interchange to Catterick, it is unclear at this stage if the second junction will remain to the north.

History

Dishforth to Catterick - The line of the A1 along this section is pretty much along the route of the pre war route, which followed the line of the Roman road, Dare Street, with the exception of a significant diversion to the west of Leeming and Leeming Bar. The old single carriageway was upgraded in sections in the late 1950s and early 1960s following the government announcement to upgrade the whole of the A1 to dual carriageway standard.

Catterick to Barton - In similar style the line of the A1 along this section is pretty much along the route of the unremarkable and straight pre war route, which followed the line of the Roman road, Dare Street, with the exception of a significant diversion to the west of Catterick. As with the section further south the old single carriageway was upgraded in sections in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Improvements

New bridge on the current improvement scheme

Major scheme to upgrade 24 miles of dual carriageway to full three lane motorway standard, with Dishforth to Leeming on site in March 2009 for completion in 2012 and Leeming to Barton is on hold.
