Tue, 18 Sep 2018

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has announced that major road improvements will start on the A614 at Bainton on Friday (21 September), weather permitting.

The works are scheduled to last for six weeks and will see the road, which is in poor condition, repaired and resurfaced with a low noise high grip material.

The work, costing £630,000, will be carried out on behalf of the council by CEMEX UK and is being funded by acontribution 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 work will begin at the south end of Bainton, and the B1248 from Beverley will be closed in the evenings from 19.00 to midnight whilst the contractor is working in the junction area. The signed diversion route will be via Middleton on the Wolds.

The work will then progress through the village northwards and will end with the resurfacing of the roundabout at the junction with the B1246 to North Dalton. The B1246 will be closed overnight from 19.00 until 06.00 during the resurfacing work at the roundabout, with a diversion via Middleton on the Wolds, from 15 October to 26 October.

The resurfacing works will take place through the village in the evenings between 19.00 and midnight. The work outside the built up area of the village will take place overnight between 19.00 and 06.00.

Work will also take place to replace kerbing and drainage, including drainage improvements north of the village. These works will be during the day, between 09.00 and 15.30.

Councillor Symon Fraser, portfolio holder for strategic asset management, housing and environment, said: “I am delighted that this is another significant scheme to be delivered through our enhanced ‘A’ road maintenance programme, funded following a successful bid to the Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund.

“This scheme will result in major benefits for road users and local residents on this busy route.”

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson added : “The working hours for the main part of the project – the resurfacing – have been scheduled overnight, and we hope will be a suitable compromise between disruption to traffic and the impact on local residents during the works.

“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these essential works.”
