£275,000 of works to bring ‘huge improvements’ to a Driffield street

Major improvements to the road and paths in a Driffield street are due to begin in the New Year.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council will invest £275,000 in a scheme to upgrade the paths along Victoria Road, Driffield, with work due to start on Tuesday 3rd January.

The scheme has been scheduled to last six weeks, with work being carried out from 8am to 4pm Mondays to Fridays, weather permitting.

To minimise disruption to residents along Victoria Road, the works will be split into six phases. 

It will involve excavating and reconstructing the existing footpaths, as well as patching, replacing damaged kerbs, crossings and drain covers.

To allow the work to go ahead, a temporary road closure will be needed, with a signed diversion in place during the scheme for through traffic via York Road, West Gate and Mill Street.

Access will be maintained for residents living within the closure area, however on-street parking will not be allowed in certain parts while work is being carried out.

Road improvements are due to follow the path works on Monday 13th February, lasting around three weeks. More details on the road works will follow.

Cllr Chris Matthews, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: “We want to thank residents in advance for their patience while we carry out this work.

“When it’s all complete they will see a huge improvement to this road and the paths.”

The work will be carried out by the council’s own highways improvement team.

The scheme is being carried out as part of the council’s annual £15m programme of road maintenance works.
