York is a major destination in Yorkshire whose non-trunk roads are currently maintained by York Council. The city was historically a Roman fort and also a Viking stronghold, and as such is rich in history.
It is one of the few remaining cities in Britain to have its walls mostly still intact. The Great North Road has always passed York some distance to the west, but the railway era ensured the city was well connected.
The A1237 northern ring road is notorious for being congested, whilst the southern ring road - the A64, used to contain the fearsome Hopgrove Roundabout bottleneck, which was alleviated somewhat following signalisation of the junction in the mid-2000s.
