Third phase of improvement works to start on the A1079 around Market Weighton

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The next stage of the £1.6million improvement works for the A1079 Hull to York road near Market Weighton is due to begin on Wednesday 10 August.

The third phase of the 15-week scheme will involve the resurfacing of the A1079 between the western end of Shiptonthorpe and Hayton, and will be done in two stages.

The first stage will involve the resurfacing of the road between Drakes Garage and the start of the Hayton dual carriageway, taking two to three weeks to complete.

Work will be carried out overnight, between 7pm and 6am Monday to Friday, to minimise the disruption to traffic.

During the night time work traffic lights will be in place and a convoy system will be used to ensure the safety of the workforce. A 30mph speed limit will also be in place.

The second stage, following straight on, will involve the resurfacing of the York-bound section of the Hayton dual carriageway.

To allow work to be done as quickly soon as possible and to minimise the disruption to traffic, the York-bound section of the carriageway will be closed, with all traffic diverted two ways along the Hull-bound section of the carriageway.

That stage will be carried out during the day and will take between two and three weeks to complete.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council contractors began work on the scheme to resurface the 12-mile stretch of the Hull to York road between the Deepdale lay-by (Highgate junction) and Barmby Moor on 20 June.

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

The first two phases of the scheme have finished. The first saw the resurfacing of the road between the Deepdale layby and Arras Hull.

The second saw the resurfacing of the Market Weighton bypass from the Holme Road roundabout to the Shiptonthorpe roundabout.

The fourth and final phase will see resurfacing work on the A1079 near to Barmby Moor, which will take three to four weeks.

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 majority of 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.

Cllr Andy Burton, portfolio holder for planning, highways and transportation, said: “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.”

The work on the A1079 scheme will be carried out by council contractors Britcon (UK) Ltd, based in Lincolnshire.
