A £240,000 scheme to improve the road surface at a busy Brough and Elloughton junction is due to start next month.

Work to resurface the roads across the junction of Welton Road, Welton Low Road and Water Lane is due to begin on Tuesday 19 March.

All work on the scheme will take place at night time to minimise disruption to traffic.

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council project is expected to take two weeks to complete.

Council contractor Tarmac Trading Ltd will be carrying out the work, which will also involve the replacement of some kerbing.

A temporary road closure will be put in place on weekday nights between the hours of 9pm and 5am while the resurfacing takes place.

During these hours only, the Brough and Elloughton junction to and from the A63 will be closed. Drivers will need to follow a diversion via the nearby South Cave junction.

Residents of Welton will only be able to travel eastbound off the A63, towards Hull.

Access will only be permitted in the area of work to residents of Stanley Jackson Way/Common Lane and the emergency services.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The road surface at this junction has worn down, so we need to replace it for the benefit and safety of drivers.

“We have programmed these works for night time only so they cause the least disruption, but we’d like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience during these two weeks of work.”
