Road improvements at Seaton Ross

A scheme to improve the section of Everingham Lane, Seaton Ross, is due to start next Monday (1 September).

Work will take place between Rytham Gate Junction and Seaton Ross village, and is scheduled to take five weeks to complete. The project will involve widening the road to six metres.

The narrow width of the existing road and the nature of the work mean it will be necessary to close the road to through traffic until the work is complete. Access to individual properties will be maintained from either the Rytham Gate Junction or the Seaton Ross end of the site, depending on where the work is being carried out at the time. Emergency services, postal services and refuse collection will be allowed access into the site.

Road users will be required to use the diversion route which will be signed via the B1228. Any further work that may be necessary at the junctions will be undertaken within temporary traffic control.

The work will be carried out by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Streetscene Services. The programme dates could be affected by weather or other unforeseen circumstances, but should this be the case, residents and businesses directly affected will be contacted with an update on progress.

An East Riding Council spokesperson said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closure of this road, but would like to reassure road users and local residents that any inconvenience will be kept to an absolute minimum, and that the end result will mean a much improved route for all users.”

The council is currently in discussions with public and school transport companies and will inform residents who live within the site limit of any changes to normal services.
