Originally a staggered crossroads, this changed with the A64 Colton Lane Grade Separated Junction scheme, which began construction in February 2004 and opened on 9 June 2005.
This scheme cost £11.32m and provided the following:
- Grade Separated Junction (flyover) between Colton Lane and Redhill Field Lane;
- Re-alignment of 0.75 km of the A64 through the junction removing sub-standard curves and to comply with current standards;
- Closure of the existing Colton Lane and provision of a turning head provided to the south of the boundary of the A64;
- Re-alignment of Colton Lane to the south of Bilbrough Top services. Approximately 160 metres south of the A64 a new junction has been constructed to the east side of Colton Lane. From this new junction a new road has been constructed running eastwards from Colton Lane passing south of the service area, before diverting north to provide an improved access for to the A64;
- The sole access to the service area would be from a new road that would connect the existing roundabout within the service area to a new junction on the realigned Colton Lane;
- Closure of the existing Redhill Field Lane junctions with the A64 and the road “stopped up” for a distance of approximately 190 metres, although remaining open to provide access to nearby fields. A new length of road was constructed to the east of the Lane from the A64 northwards to rejoin Redhill Field Lane at a point approximately 170 metres north of the A64, proving an improved exit from Bilbrough village onto the A64; and
- Central reservation gap closures on the A64 at Colton Lane, Redhill Field Lane and opposite Steeton House Farm.
