Major overnight roadworks start next Monday on A1079 Market Weighton bypass

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding motorists using the A1079 that the second phase of its major scheme to improve the road between Barmby Moor and the Deepdale layby near Bishop Burton begins next Monday night (25 July).

This second phase involves resurfacing the Market Weighton bypass from Holme Road roundabout to Shiptonthorpe roundabout. Work will also be carried out on the two roundabouts.

The contractor for the work will be Britcon (UK) Ltd, and this phase is scheduled to take two weeks to complete.

The work will be carried out overnight between 7pm and 6 am Monday – Friday, during which time the road will be closed to traffic, although access will be maintained to properties within the works area. York Road will also be closed at its junction with the A1079. Signed diversions will be in place via Holme Road South, Market Weighton Road and the A614 Shipton Lane. The works on the roundabouts will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.

This phase of work is part of a £1.6 million improvement scheme on a 12-mile stretch of the A1079 Hull to York road around Market Weighton.

The entire scheme is planned to take 15 weeks and is due to be complete by early October.

The scheme will be carried out in four separate phases, and most of the work will be carried out overnight to lessen the impact on traffic.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We apologise in advance for any delays or disruption this scheme will cause, but these are necessary improvements to a very busy stretch of road.

“Our contractors will be carrying out the work overnight to try to minimise the inconvenience to motorists.

“When it is complete road users will see an improvement as the new surface is designed to be quieter and improve tyre grip.

“We would like to thank residents, businesses and motorists for their patience while this work is carried out.”

The A1079 road improvement scheme is the first to be funded following the council’s successful £16.7 million bid through the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund to the Department for Transport.

This extra funding will be used on a programme of works to improve the condition of ‘A’ roads in the East Riding over the next five years.

Councillor Andy Burton, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s portfolio holder for planning, highways and transportation, added: “Thanks to its successful bid for funding, the council will be able to improve this stretch of the A1079 and other important ‘A’ roads across the area.

“Motorists, residents and businesses will see the benefits for years to come.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gmaps link=”#E-8_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”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
