A new bypass in Beverley is getting ready to welcome its first users as it finally opens.

The 2.8km stretch of tarmac, called Minster Way, will serve as a relief road around the south of the picturesque town.

It has taken nearly eight months of work and £22 million to complete. East Riding Council hopes it will reduce traffic in the area, particularly on Keldgate, Victoria Road, Queensgate and Hengate, cutting journey times for motorists.

An estimated 13,000 vehicles will use the bypass every day, including large goods vehciles that have previously caused problems when trying to navigate their way through the small roads in the town centre.

Minster Way, which runs from the A164 Victoria Road roundabout around the south of Beverley to the A1174 Hull Road, is part of the Beverley Integrated Transport Plan. It will open to motorists this month.
