£620,000 road improvements for Willerby to begin next week
Major road improvements are due to get underway in Willerby next week.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is investing £620,000 in the project to upgrade the road surface along Kingston Road, Willerby, between Willerby Square Roundabout and the Hull city boundary.
The work is scheduled to start on Tuesday 18 October and is expected to take 15 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
The scheme is being split into eight smaller sections to minimise disruption to residents, businesses and road users, as much as possible, with the majority of the work being carried out in the evening.
Daytime work will involve replacing kerbing and ironworks in each phase, from 9am to 5pm, while on-street parking will be suspended in each area while the work goes on.
Resurfacing for each phase will be carried out in the evening, between 6pm and 11pm each night, while a temporary road closure will be in place.
Signed diversion routes will be in place for through traffic for each section.
The phases will be:
Phase 1 – Willerby Square roundabout to Hawthorne Avenue (eastbound side),
Phase 2 – Willerby Square roundabout to house number 86 (westbound side),
Phase 3 – Hawthorne Avenue to Gorton Road roundabout (eastbound side)
Phase 4 – House number 86 to Gorton Road roundabout (Westbound side)
Diversion, Phases 1 and 3 – Gorton Road, Beverley Road, Willerby Square,
Diversion, Phase 2 and 4 – Willerby Square, Beverley Road, Gorton Road.
Phase 5 – Gorton Road roundabout to Wolfreton Lane (eastbound side),
Phase 6 – Gorton Road roundabout to Blackthorn Lane (westbound side),
Phase 7 – Wolfreton Lane to Hull City boundary (eastbound side),
Phase 8 – Blackthorn Lane to Hull City boundary (westbound side),
Diversion, Phases 5 and 7 – Gorton Road, Springfield Way, Hull Road, Calvert Lane, Willerby Road,
Diversion, Phases 6 and 8 – Willerby Road, Calvert Lane, Hull Road, Springfield Way, Gorton Road.
Residents, business owners, emergency, postal and waste services will still have access to the work sites, however some delays are likely during the working hours.
The work will be carried out by council contractor PBS (N.E) Construction Ltd.
Councillor Chris Matthews, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: “We would like to thank residents, businesses and motorists in advance while this work is being carried out.
“This is essential work and most of it has been purposely scheduled to be carried out in the evening to avoid disrupting traffic too much.”
