A scheme to build a new five-arm roundabout in Goole has received a £1 million boost from the Department for Transport.

The project, which is costing £1.581 million includes the construction of a new five-arm roundabout at the staggered crossroad between the A614 Airmyn Road and Glews Garage in Goole.

Work is due to start in October, this year, and be completed by April 2014.

It is one of 10 schemes which will share £25m – the first allocation of a fund which aims to remove bottlenecks.

Transport secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, said: "Tackling bottlenecks on the highway network will help get the country moving and the economy growing.

"I want to see this work underlay and shovels in the ground as soon as possible, so today I am announcing £25m to fast track the first 10 schemes."

Goole MP Andrew Percy took to his Twitter page earlier today following the announcement saying it is "great news" for the town.
