WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE OLD A1?

ADDED 20 JULY 2006

Does anyone really know what is happening with the old A1 at Knottingley / Ferrybridge?

The present roadworks on and around the old road are at best haphazard, and at their worst a danger to all users. The traffic cones seem to have a mind of their own, moving around indiscriminately, often under the cover of darkness. Different signs appear daily, traffic lights sprout like daisies and then disappear just as you get used to them.

The new motorway is the best thing to happen to this area for years, relieving the amount of traffic around our town, but the old road is a nightmare. I've come to the conclusion that the highways department are using it as some kind of test-track, where road workers can hone their skills before being allowed out onto the open road.

Has anyone out there got any explanation to the discombobulation on what was once the Great North Road?
