Road Improvements Worth 140 000 For Road Near Beverley

Road improvements are to be made to Weel Road at Tickton, near Beverley. 

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to invest £140,000 to upgrade the narrow road, which is a popular route to Weel Household Waste Recycling Site. 

Weel Road is to be resurfaced between its junction with Main Street, Tickton, to the vehicle access to Holland Farm, which is north of the metal bridge leading to Grovehill Road, Beverley. 

The scheme is due to start on Monday 11 March and take two weeks to complete, with work carried out during the daytime, from 9am to 3.30pm on week days. 

Weel Road will be temporarily closed to traffic between the junction of Main Street, Tickton, down to just before the metal bridge over the River Hull during working times only, for the length of the scheme. The road will reopen outside working hours. 

Access to the village of Weel and Weel Household Waste Recycling Site will be kept open at all times via the metal bridge from Grovehill Road, Beverley. 

During the closure there will be a signed diversion route via Main Street, Tickton, the A1035, Swinemoor Lane then Grovehill Road, Beverley. 

The work will be carried out by the council’s own road improvement team.

The council plans to carry out improvement work along the remaining section of Weel Road over the next couple of years.  

Councillor Paul West, the council’s cabinet member for environment and transport, said: “Weel Road is a popular route and well used, and now we need to improve the road surface for the benefit of all users. 

“Because it’s a narrow road, a temporary closure is unavoidable while we carry out this work, but we want to thank local residents and drivers for bearing with us until it’s complete.”
