Major roadworks project to begin next month

A major road improvement program on the B1228 is set to begin next month, following its postponement after heavy rain in January.

Around eight miles of the road will have their existing carriageway recycled when the road closes on 8 July.

The improvements were originally scheduled to take place in January but very high rainfall levels meant any work would have been adversely affected.

The reconstruction work is scheduled to take around five weeks at two separate sites between the A163 junction at Bubwith and the junction near Spaldington approximately one mile north of Howden railway station.

Access through the two sites will only be permitted for residents and businesses, within the limits of the reconstruction works and a signed traffic diversion will be in place for through traffic via A1079 Dunnington - Shiptonthorpe Roundabout - A614 - Holme-on-Spalding-Moor - Howden.

Alternatively traffic can divert to the west via A64 York - A19 - A63 Howden.
