Road improvement works at five East Riding roundabouts to begin this monthThu 1st October 2020
A major scheme to improve the road surfaces around five roundabouts in the East Riding is to begin this month.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is investing around £600,000 in the scheme to upgrade the roundabouts, including four on the busy A1035 and A165 Beverley to Bridlington road.
The work is due to begin on Monday 12 October with the resurfacing of the Swinemoor Lane roundabout in Beverley, where the A1035 meets Hull Bridge Road.
The improvements will then follow on at the White Cross, Leven and Brandesburton roundabouts, along the Leven bypass on the A1035 and A165.
The scheme will conclude with patching improvements to the Dunswell roundabout, on the A1079 road near to the Kingswood retail park, which is due to be carried out in November.
All the road work will be carried out during evening times to keep traffic disruption to a minimum.
The Swinemoor Lane roundabout improvements will be carried out between 7pm and 11pm, Mondays to Fridays.
During those hours of work, Grange Way will be closed to all traffic apart from the emergency services. Drivers will be asked to follow a diversion via Molesscroft and Norwood.
Councillor Gary McMaster, the council’s portfolio holder for enhancing communities, said: “We would like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience while we carry out this essential resurfacing work, but we will try to keep disruption to a minimum.
“These are busy roundabouts on busy routes and we need to make sure they are maintained for the safety of all road users.”
The scheme is part of the council’s highways maintenance programme.
The work will be carried out by council contractors Britcon (UK) Ltd.
