A £450,000 road improvement scheme for Cottingham is due to begin early in the new year.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is due to begin work along Thwaite Street starting on Monday 10 January.

The work will involve road surfacing and footpath improvements and is due to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Kerbing and channel works will be carried out on weekdays (Monday to Friday) from 8am to 5pm, with temporary traffic lights in place.

Road resurfacing works will be carried out on evenings (Monday to Friday) between 6pm and 11pm, under a temporary road closure.

During the evening works there will be a signed diversion route for traffic via Newgate Street, Baynard Road, West End Road, North Gate and New Village Road.

The work will be carried out by council contractors PBS Construction (NE) Ltd.

Residents are being informed that vehicle access to homes will be restricted during evening road closure work for the safety of road users and the workforce.

The council and the contractor will be consulting with affected residents and businesses.

Cllr Chris Matthews, the council's portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: "We would like to thank the area's residents, businesses and motorists in advance for their patience while this work is carried out.

"The majority of the work is being carried out in the evening to try to avoid problems for traffic.

"Residents will see the benefits of the new road surface and the paths when all is complete"
