East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding local residents and road users that the final stages of the carriageway improvements to Bessingby Road in Bridlington are about to begin.

Bessingby Road will be completely closed from Station Road to the Morrisons roundabout, including Kingsgate junction, on three Sunday evenings : 12 and 19 May and 2 June, between 6pm and midnight. The signed diversion route will be via Bessingby Hill, Scarborough Road, St John Street, Quay Road, and Station Road.

Pedestrian access will be available at all times, as will access for emergency services.

In addition, Bessingby Road will be closed from Bessingby Hill to Morrisons roundabout on the eastbound carriageway ONLY during week commencing Tuesday, 14 May, from 6pm to midnight each night. The signed diversion route will be via Bessingby Hill, Scarborough Road, St John Street, Quay Road, and Station Road.

Traffic signals will control the entrance to the hospital, with exit only being available on the westbound carriageway of Bessingby Road. Traffic may experience a short delay in entering and leaving the hospital when the work is taking place across the junction.

Pedestrian access will be available at all times, as will access for emergency services.

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We have scheduled these major improvement works in the evenings to keep disruption to a minimum, but we do apologise in advance for the inevitable inconvenience that the road closures will cause.

“This is the final stage of this scheme, and we are grateful for the patience of residents and road users in the area.”

The works form part of a £1.6 million scheme which includes improvements to the remainder of Kingsgate. The programme is being carried out on behalf of the council by Tarmac Trading Ltd, and the scheme has been funded with a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund secured by York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership, following a successful bid by the council.
