Night time work to resurface two busy junctions in Bridlington town centre is due to be carried out next week.
Junctions at Beck Hill and Bridge Street are to be resurfaced as part of the latest round of improvement works being carried out for East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s multi-million-pound Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan Phase 2 (Brid ITP2).
The work is expected to take three nights and is due to start on Tuesday 29 May.
All work will be carried out after 9pm each night to minimise disruption to motorists and procedures will be in place to minimise noise.
The scheduled work, which is all subject to weather conditions, is due to include:
- Tuesday 29 May after 9pm – Preparation works will take place to remove the old road surfaces in Beck Hill and Bridge Street.
- Wednesday 30 May after 9pm – The Beck Hill, Prospect Street and Manor Street junction will be resurfaced.
- Thursday 31 May after 9pm – The Bridge Street and Queen Street junctions will be resurfaced and road markings will be applied to both junctions.
To enable the work to be carried out, part of Prospect Street, Manor Street, Chapel Street and North Street, near the junction with Beck Hill, will be closed to traffic from 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday (29 and 30 May) only. Diversions will be put in place.
Bridge Street will be closed to traffic from 9pm on Thursday 31 May. Diversions will also be put in place.
All roads will reopen in the early hours of each morning, and will remain open during the daytime and early evening.
Access will still be maintained for pedestrians, affected properties and the emergency services during the closures.
The road closures will not affect bus services, as the closures will be in place after the last bus and removed before the first bus the next morning.
The work is being carried out by council contractors PBS Construction Ltd, who will have staff on site to help people who need access.
Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “These works are essential to improve the road surfaces and tie-in the new works and improve the surfaces at the junctions of Prospect Street, Manor Street and Beck Hill, and Bridge Street and Queen Street.
“Because these are extremely busy junctions we will be carrying out all work at night to minimise disruption to motorists and residents.”
