The A165 is a road that links Scarborough and Kingston upon Hull, both in Yorkshire, England. It is close to the coast for the northern part of the route. It takes the following route

Speed Limits[edit]

Much of the road is through countryside, and has the National speed limit (60 miles per hour (97 km/h)) applied. A 3.5 miles (5.6 km) stretch of the road passing the village of Leven in East Yorkshire (known as the Leven bypass) is Dual Carriageway, carrying a 70 miles per hour (110 km/h) speed limit.

The road does however pass through many villages and settlements, where the limit is reduced. A 30 miles per hour (48 km/h) speed limit is in operation through Beeford, Bridlington, Filey, Skirlaugh. A 40 miles per hour (64 km/h) limit exists through other villages such as Fraisthorpe and Coniston.

In Scarborough, Bridlington, and the Kingston upon Hull boundary, the limit is 30 miles per hour (48 km/h) or 40 miles per hour (64 km/h).

Some stretches of 30 miles per hour (48 km/h) or 40 miles per hour (64 km/h) limits are monitored at certain times by mobile speed cameras, operated by Safer Roads Humber.

Safety[edit]

In the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) survey, which gives all major roads in Europe a safety rating, the A165 is categorised as 'Medium-high risk' [1].
