Latest news from Sustrans: ⛔️ Route closure: Solar System Way ⛔️
Bridge construction work on the Solar System Way will be taking place from 21st February for a number of weeks. During this time there will be a path closure near Escrick Station, Stillingfleet Road (see map).
Users will have access to the path up to the work site until the closure is extended to cover the path between Escrick and Riccall in early March to allow for resurfacing works to take place along the route. Unfortunately, there are no suitable diversions.

LATEST UPDATE: ⛔️ROUTE CLOSURE: SOLAR SYSTEM WAY⛔️
A closure will be in place from Stillingfleet Road to Riccall from 8:00am on Tuesday 1st March for around three weeks to allow for resurfacing works to take place. Unfortunately, we are unable to signpost a suitable diversion.
Resurfacing work will be taking place in sections along the path in the coming weeks and we will update this page with further information regarding closures as dates are confirmed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Latest update from Sustrans Yorkshire Facebook page: ⚠️ Solar System Way ⚠️
Please be aware that sections of the Solar System Way are still closed whilst improvements to the path take place.
The first section from Riccall to Escrick will be finished around the 4th April. The next section, Escrick Station/Stillingfleet Road to Vicarage Lane Naburn, should then close on 4th April. This means that there will be no through route to York from Escrick Station/Stillingfleet Road in to York, and no through route to Riccall from York for the duration of the works.
Unfortunately we don't yet have a completion date for these works but will update when we do.
Solar System Greenway update from Sustrans. Riccall to Stillingfleet Road now finished but from there to Naburn now closed. Work alongside the A64 to start on the 25th for 5 weeks so see our suggested traffic-free diversion
We expect the first section of work from Escrick to Naburn to be finished by the 30th and will update closer to the time. The path at this point will then be closed from Vicarage Lane to the Ouse bridge for a further 6 weeks.
