Carriageway improvement works are set to get underway near Pocklington, between Yapham Mill and Bolton, and are expected to take about a month to complete.

The East Riding Council scheme, which is part of the council’s programme of highway maintenance works, will involve resurfacing the road between Yapham Mill and Rowland Hill Farm.

The scheme is due to start tomorrow (19 April) and is expected to be completed by 20 May, weather permitting. The work will be constructed in two phases, the first phase will involve structural strengthening works to the edges of the carriageway and will take place under traffic signals and a convoy system.

Some temporary road closures will be in operation between 9 May and 20 May, with traffic diversions in place to allow the road surface to be replaced.

The works will consist of strengthening the carriageway edges, replacing the existing road surface and replacing the road markings.

East Riding Council Streetscene Services have been appointed to undertake the works.
