Residents and motorists in Howden are being informed of updates to a £1.1million scheme to improve the main road through the town centre.

Work began in March on the East Riding of Yorkshire Council project to resurface the full length of road along the main street through the town, including Pinfold Street, Bridgegate, Flatgate and Hull Road.

The improvement work will continue until September - with the first phase now expected to be complete by the end of May.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We experienced some slight delays at the start of the scheme, so we want to keep people informed of the revised dates for the rest of the project.

“We will still be keeping disruption to a minimum and we want to thank residents and motorists for their continued patience while these improvements are being carried out.”

The work is to be carried out by council contractor PBS (NE) Construction Ltd and involves both daytime and evening roadworks.

Access will still be permitted within the works areas to residents, business owners and the emergency services.

Residents and motorists are asked not to leave their vehicles parked at the side of the road during each section of the work.

The latest updates on the Howden scheme are as follows:

Phase one

Phase one involves the resurfacing of the road and footpaths along Pinfold Street and Bridgegate between the junction with Knedlington Road and the Co-op store car park.
