Carriageway Maintenance Works at New Village Road, Cottingham start next week

Wed, 10 Apr 2019

As part of its programme of highway maintenance works, East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to carry out carriageway maintenance works along New Village Road, Cottingham, between Thwaite Street and Endyke Lane roundabouts.

Work on the £200,000 scheme is due to start on Tuesday, 16 April and will last for five weeks (weather permitting). To minimise disruption to traffic, the working hours will be 18:00 – 23:00 Monday to Friday. The road will remain open outside of these working hours.

The work will be carried out on behalf of the council by Tarmac Trading Ltd.

The improvements consist of resurfacing the carriageway, along with drainage and kerbing repairs. In order to undertake the works safely and efficiently, the road will be closed between the above times. Parking on the carriageway will be restricted during working hours to allow access for construction traffic.

Work will be carried out in two phases – Phase 1 includes Thwaite Street and Hull Road Roundabout, along with half of New Village Road. Phase 2 includes the second half of New Village Road, along with Endyke Lane mini-roundabout.

Access will be maintained for residents and emergency services at all times. However, a signed diversion route will be in place for the duration of the work.

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We apologise to motorists and local residents for any inconvenience caused by these overnight works, but assure road users that they will appreciate the benefits when the works are completed.”
