Route

The A164 is a cross-country A-road in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Hessle - Great Driffield

The route of this road changed considerably when Clive Sullivan Way and the Humber Bridge link road opened in the 1980s. The original route, from the centre of Hull and then on through Anlaby, is now the B1231, (which is why it is dual carriageway), and then it went through Kirk Ella and Willerby along an unclassified road that is now bypassed by the B1232. The road now starts at a roundabout north of the Humber Bridge, where the A15 TOTSOs to reach the A63, although the road between here and the A63 is variously described as A15 or A164. This section was built in 1991, up until it meets the Willerby bypass, built in the early 1970's.

The A164 heads north, bypassing Hull. This road is built to quite a high standard - few junctions and mostly clearway - after being upgraded in the 1980's. There is even a short section of dual carriageway.

After a GSJ where the road crosses the A1079 (which is D2 only for the junction), the A164 used to pass through the centre of Beverley, losing its Primary status in doing so, but after Minster Way (the Southern Bypass) opened in early 2015, the A164 heads east to meet the A1174. The A164 has a useless mutiplex with the A1174, then a mutliplex with the A1035. When the A164 still ran through Beverley, it ran along Victoria Road and Queensgate. Then it ran along the current B1230 into the town centre. From there it left to the north of the town, passing through Molescroft and meeting the B1248, later the A1035 Beverley northern bypass at Molescroft Roundabout, where it turned onto Driffield Road.

We turn off at Driffield Road Roundabout where the road continues north across flat land. It goes through villages like Leconfield and Hutton Cranswick and presently reaches a roundabout on the southern edge of Driffield. The road originally continued into town to end on the A166 but now bears left onto the original eastern end of the A163 to end at a roundabout on the 1983-built Driffield bypass, which was originally the A163 but was renumbered A614 in 1995.

In 2017 East Riding Council proposed dualling of the A164 south of the A1079 junction at Jock's Lodge.
