East Riding of Yorkshire Council has announced that carriageway improvement works will start on the A614 between Market Weighton and Holme on Spalding Moor on Monday, 1 July and are scheduled to run until 19 July, between 19.00 and 06.00 Monday to Friday.

The work will cost £650,000, and will be carried out on behalf of the council by Britcon (UK) Ltd. It is funded from the government’s Local Growth Fund, secured by the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership, following a successful bid by the council.

Work will start at Harswell Lane and run eastwards to Gallymoor roundabout under traffic management controlled by a convoy system. Cliffe Road will be closed on the nights of 3 July and 9 July whilst work takes place across the junction. The diversion will be via Cliffe Lane, Sand Lane, C8 Cliffe Road, and the A1079.

During work on the Gallymoor roundabout, the Market Weighton/ Holme on Spalding Moor leg of the roundabout will be closed between 11 July and 19 July. Traffic will be diverted via the A1079, Shiptonthorpe roundabout, and the A614.

Work will then move to Market Weighton Road / Holme Road to resurface the carriageway. This will mean that the C42 Market Weighton/ Holme Road will be closed overnight from 22 July until 6 August, and traffic will be diverted via the A1079, Shiptonthorpe roundabout, and the A614.

River Lane will also be closed, with a diversion signed along Cliffe Road, A1079, and A614.

Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for strategic management, said : “ I am delighted that we have been able to secure the funding to carry out these essential improvements. The works will provide long term benefit for road users on this busy route, as the surfacing to be used generates very low surface noise levels, and provides high levels of grip.”

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said : “ We apologise to motorists for the temporary inconvenience caused by these works and the road closures, and ask them to bear with us. The majority of the work has been scheduled overnight to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.”
