The East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued an update on the £600,000 scheme of major road improvements on the A614 at Holme on Spalding Moor.

Work on Moor End in the village were initially slower than anticipated because of problems encountered while installing additional drainage along the road.

The council’s contractors are working at the south end of the village to ensure that a large section of the carriageway can be resurfaced before the Tour de Yorkshire.

After the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, work will re-start on the north end of the village around Beacon View, when new drainage kerbs will be installed.

The main resurfacing of the carriageway has been scheduled for the weekend of 16 and 17 June. That weekend, the A614 will be closed to through traffic and traffic will be diverted from the M62 via South Cave and Market Weighton.

The council is hoping that work can be completed before the end of June.

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these essential works, and thank all road users for their patience.”

The work is being carried out by Britcon Limited and is funded by a contribution from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund.
