Work to start on new cycle path along Hornsea road

Fri, 18 Jan 2019

Work is due to begin next week on a £65,000 scheme to create a new cycle path in Hornsea.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council will be carrying out work to widen a stretch of footpath along the A1035 Seaton Road to form a new shared cycleway and footpath between the junctions with Cheyne Walk and Bewholme Lane.

Council contractor Galliford Try is due to start work on Monday 21 January and the project is expected to take around four weeks to complete.

The work will be carried out between 9am and 5pm on week days, and two-way traffic lights will be in operation during that time.

A temporary pathway for pedestrians will be put in place during the scheme.

Some minor drainage works will also take place at the same time to tackle a problem with standing water.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “We want to thanks motorists and pedestrians in advance for their patience while we work on this scheme.

“When it’s complete the new shared cycleway and footpath will be a big benefit to cyclists using this route and will improve road safety.”
