A1(M)

The A1(M) from Dishforth to Barton is a mostly-online upgrade of the A1 dual carriageway between junctions 49 and 56. It was upgraded in two related schemes: the Dishforth to Leeming scheme (junction 49 to 51) which started in 2009 and was completed in 2012, and the Leeming to Barton scheme (junction 51 to 56), which was completed in 2018.

New bridge on the Dishforth to Leeming improvement scheme

Upgrade to full three lane motorway standard, Dishforth to Leeming scheme work started on site in March 2009 for completion in 2012.

Initially the entire Dishforth to Barton stretch was going to be upgraded as part of this scheme, but then the Leeming to Barton stretch was put on hold.

Leeming to Barton scheme

The Leeming to Barton scheme was initially put on hold but then resurrected.

Much of the new motorway paralleled the existing A1, with a diversion from the existing line of the A1 at Marne Barracks in Catterick. A new junction, Catterick Central Interchange, has been built; several former A1 junctions were closed with access being transferred to the new A6055 local access road.

Construction started in March 2014, with the improvements fully opening to traffic in March 2018. By May 2018, all works were complete.

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.
