North Yorkshire B-road set to close for week long resurfacing works
A busy B-road is set to see huge improvements after a resurfacing scheme set to start on Sunday 12.
The B1249 from Foxholes to Staxton Hill will be resurfaced and North Yorkshire County Council will also be carrying out kerbing works and essential annual maintenance.
The work is set to be carried out from 8pm on Sunday to 6am on the Monday, and due to the nature of the works a full road closure will be in operation.
Councillor Janet Sanderson, local member, said: “It’s clear that the B1249, particularly at Staxton Hill, has deteriorated over the last few years.
“We are now in a position to carry out these essential improvements which need to be completed before the winter weather takes hold.
“These repairs will ensure that this well used route will continue to serve local residents, businesses and those road users travelling from further afield.”
A signed diversion will be in place along the B1253 to Bridlington, the A165 north towards Filey and the A1039 via Muston to Staxton and the A64.
Cllr Sanderson added: “We are urging all road users to follow the signed diversion route rather than attempting to use narrow, unsuitable rural roads.
“We apologise for any inconvenience these essential works will cause but ask the public for their patience and please allow extra time for your journey.”
