Major £600,000 highway improvement scheme to begin near Melbourne on Monday

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is set to start work on a £600,000 road improvement scheme in this area on Monday (February 15).

Thursday, 4th February 2021, 7:45 am
The improvement work involves strengthening the sides of the existing carriageway, overlaying the existing carriageway, improving surface water drainage and installing new road markings.

The project will improve the route along Common Lane and Melbourne Road, between Main Street Junction near Melbourne and Rytham Gate Junction near Seaton Ross.

The work is expected to be completed by mid-April, weather permitting.

The improvements involve strengthening the sides of the existing carriageway, overlaying the existing carriageway, improving surface water drainage and installing new road markings.

The council’s streetscene services have been appointed to carry out this essential work.

Due to the narrow width of the road and the nature of the work, a full road closure and signed traffic diversion via Seaton Common Lane, Ash Lane, B1228 General Lane and Main Street, Melbourne will be in operation for the duration of the works.

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We apologise in advance for the inconvenience that this road closure will cause whilst essential work is ongoing.

“Our staff will carry out these works whilst paying full regard to social distancing and safe working practices.”
