Report an incident on the A1079

We are seeking evidence of incidents on the A1079 that are not normally reported. These can include delays due to 'minor shunts' or slow moving vehicles or gridlock due to popular events such as the gridlock on Wednesday 22nd February 2006 due to a popular local auction.

We would also welcome details of incidents which, but for luck, could have resulted in a major accident. This could include problems caused by vehicles joining, crossing or leaving the A1079.

If you are aware of any incident that you feel could be added to our list please send details to webmaster@a1079.org.uk.

Thank you for your help.

See our incident list.

I hear they are wanting a 50mph speed limit in place from hayton all the way to dunnington, all this will do is to make people overtake more and i bet there are more accidents, the speed limit is just fine as it is! i go to york every morning and i aint crashed!

Two accidents this week. One was just outside Common Lane, Dunnington. Apparently a tractor pulled out on a lorry, or else the lorry for some reason drive into the back of the tractor. And sadly, this morning a fatal accident at Shiptonthorpe.

How many more people is it going to take to DIE before somebody decides to sort this road out.

Going north, I was overtook by a young male in a hot hatch on the section known as the Beverley by-pass. He was doing 90mph in my estimation. He then pulled into a lay-by, but was still maintaining about 70mph, drove along it and then out again and in doing so undertook a slow moving lorry! It was all the more horrific because in that lay-by was a young mum with the off-side rear door open (looked like she was securing a small child in a car-seat). He must have missed her by inches. It could have so easily have been a different story.

AS A REGULAR USER OF THE A1079 I HAVE SEEN SOME NEAR MISSES, MOST OF THEM DUE TO PEOPLE PULLING ONTO THE A1079 WHEN THERE IS AN INSUFFICENT GAP, OTHER TIMES DUE TO PEOPLE OVERTAKING ON BENDS. MY GIRLFRIEND WENT INTO THE BACK OF SOMEONE AT POCKLINGTON AFTER THEY PULLED OUT INFRONT OF HER THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO HER CAR LUCKY THE IDIOT INFRONT HAD ALL THE DAMAGE. SOME THING NEEDS TO BE DONE, THE JUNCTIONS AT POCKINGTON AND WILBERFOSS ARE A JOKE.

The A1079 is closed in both directions due to a serious accident which occurred at about 5.30am this morning between the Back Lane junction and the Town Street junction in Shiptonthorpe. The police are stopping every vehicle and redirecting them verbally depending on destination.

2.11.07 Pedestrian refuges Dunnington to Hexby, all lacking some or all of their illumination. Unlighted obstruction on highway? Gliding Club turn from York, disused access with deceleration bays nr to junction is misleading. 5 tons? of soil needed.
