A £950,000 scheme to improve the road surface along Hornsea’s main shopping area and two of the town’s major roundabouts is now complete.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s contractors began work in September to resurface the full length of the road in Newbegin, between Market Place and Cliff Road, with most of the work being carried out at night to avoid disruptions.
Then in October, work started on resurfacing the Bull Ring Roundabout and Market Place and the Southgate roundabout, near the town’s Tesco supermarket.
The scheme also included the introduction of some unique features as part of the Hornsea Pottery Art Trail.
A piece of pavement art was installed outside Hornsea Museum and a number of decorative tiles were set into the footpath along Newbegin to celebrate the history and designs of Hornsea Pottery.
The Bull Ring Roundabout is also now home to a shoal of fish, after seaside-themed tiles were added to the new-look arrow blocks.
The improvement work was carried out by council contractors Britcon (UK) Ltd and was completed on schedule.
Councillor John Barrett, the council’s portfolio holder for operational services, said: “The resurfacing work has made a big improvement to the roads in the town centre and has really improved the look of the shopping area. I think drivers and residents will definitely notice the difference.
“The mosaic tiling on the pavements and the roundabout are a really attractive feature which I believe will help to attract more visitors to Hornsea as part of the celebrations of Hornsea Pottery and the art trail.”
