Roadworks to cause disruption in Holme

ROADWORKS will take place in Holme-on-Spalding Moor this month which are expected to take two weeks to complete.

Patching and resurfacing will be carried out on Selby Road and High Street as part of East Riding Council’s programme of highway maintenance. In addition, manhole covers and road markings will be renewed.

Work is scheduled to commence on Monday, 13 June. The work will be carried out in two phases between the mini roundabout at the A614 junction and Major Bridge.

Weather permitting, the first phase between the mini roundabout at the A614 junction and Runner Lane is expected to be completed in seven days.

Due to the narrow width of sections of the carriageway and to undertake the work safely, the road will be closed to through traffic during working hours.

The road will be closed from 9.15am-5pm, Monday to Friday, and 8am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday. Temporary traffic lights may be in operation outside of these times with the road open to traffic.

When the surfacing is undertaken at Major Bridge, the road will be closed to all through traffic for one day due to the narrow section on a bend. This is programmed to take place on Sunday, 26 June.

Access for residents, shop deliveries, emergency services, refuse collection, mobile library, mobile optician and postal services will be allowed through the works and operate as normal.

Existing bus services, including school buses, will run as normal, although the 18A service will start and finish at Foggathorpe.

Heavy goods vehicles will be diverted at Bubwith via the B1228 and A614 via Howden. Light vehicles will be diverted via Runner End and Back Lane where a 7.5 tonne weight limit exists for the first seven days.

Galliford Try Highway Maintenance Ltd has been contracted to undertake the work on behalf of East Riding Council.
