Improvements to the section of Seaton Common Lane in Seaton Ross, between Campey Lane and Seaton Ross, is due to start on Monday 2 September.

This is to widen the road to six metres to accommodate the HGV traffic that uses the route and therefore reduce future high maintenance costs. The work is expected to take 10 weeks to complete.

However, because of the narrow width of the existing road and the nature of the work, the road will be closed to through traffic until the work is complete.

Work will be undertaken in phases to minimise disruption and ensure access to businesses and properties within the scheme limits.

Properties can be accessed from either the Campey Lane end or the Seaton Ross end of the site, depending on where the work is being carried out at the time.

Emergency services, postal services and refuse collection will be allowed access into the site.

Last Monday, work began on re-kerbing and improving Seaton Common Lane/Mill Lane junction, with temporary three-way traffic lights in operation.

The tarmac surfacing to the junction will take place on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 September.

Due to the narrow width of Mill Lane and Everingham Lane junction, the whole of the junction will have to be closed during working hours to undertake this work safely.

The start of work will be delayed until 9am each day to minimise disruption to morning commuter traffic, but East Riding Council cannot stipulate a finishing time and road users will be required to use the diversion route which will be signed via the A163 and B1228.

Any further work that may be necessary at the junctions will be undertaken within temporary traffic control.

The work will be carried out by East Riding Council’s Streetscene Services.

The council is currently in discussions with public and school transport companies and will inform residents who live within the site limit of any changes to normal services.W
