Road improvement works costing £300,000 are due to start in Bugthorpe next week.

East Riding Council is set to begin work on a 2.3 mile stretch of road on Town Hill and Bugthorpe Lane in the village from Monday (1 February).

The work, taking place between the Stephenwath Lane and Hanging Lane junctions, will involve resurfacing sections of the road and carrying out structural patching in other sections where needed.

The scheme is expected to take six weeks to complete, weather permitting.

To allow the work to be carried out the road between Bugthorpe and Kirby Underdale, along Bugthorpe Lane, will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the scheme.

During that time traffic between both villages will be diverted via the A166 and Garrowby Hill.

Access for residents and businesses will be maintained as much as possible.

However, for one day only the junction near the post office on Main Street will be closed for resurfacing, with no route through.

Dave Waudby, the council’s head of infrastructure and facilities, said: “We apologise in advance for any delays or disruption this scheme may cause but the work is necessary, and when finished residents and road users will see a big improvement.”
