Patrington road resurfacing scheme to resume next week
A major road improvement scheme for the A1033 through the village of Patrington, in Holderness, is to resume next week after it was halted in March because of the coronavirus lockdown.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council will restart the work on the £450,000 scheme to resurface Northgate and Hollym Road on Tuesday 1 September.
A third road, Pump Row, will also be resurfaced as part of the scheme.
The works are expected to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting.
The first phase of works along Northgate will start next week.
Due to the narrowness of the road, the stretch between Market Place and Tithe Barn Lane will need to be temporarily closed to traffic for the first two weeks.
A signed diversion route will be in place, taking traffic via High Street.
The work will be carried out during 7.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
The resurfacing works will then continue on to Hollym Road, starting with the Tithe Barn Lane junction, and is expected to last two weeks.
Work on this part of the scheme will be carried out during the night, between 4.30pm and 6am.
The work will then move to Pump Row towards the end of September. The road will need to be closed for around three days to allow for the resurfacing.
This work will be carried out during the day time and will complete the road improvements.
The council's own highways maintenance team will carry out the scheme.
Residents are asked to note that on-street parking will not be permitted during the working hours, but pedestrian access will remain unaffected.
The project is being partly funded by a contribution from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership's Local Growth Fund. This funding was secured following the submission of a successful bid by the council.
The scheme began in March with some resurfacing along Westgate, before the rest of the work had to be postponed due to the lockdown.
The resumed work will be carried out in accordance with social-distancing guidelines.
Councillor Chris Matthews, the council's portfolio holder for strategic property, infrastructure and climate change, said: "We're pleased to be able to restart this road improvement scheme, which understandably had to be cut short because of the coronavirus lockdown.
"But our highways maintenance team will be back in Patrington next week and we'd like to thank residents and motorists for their patience while we carry out this resurfacing.
"They will see a much improved road through the village when it's completed."
