Road improvements are due to be carried out on a section of the main A1079 York-to-Hull road at Hayton, near Pocklington. 

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to invest £300,000 on a scheme to upgrade the road surface along York Road in the village. 

The project is due to start on Tuesday 7th May and last for four weeks, weather permitting, during weekdays from 9:30am-3:30pm, avoiding morning and afternoon rush hours. 

The work will involve resurfacing the existing road under temporary traffic signals, with a convoy system in operation to protect the workforce.  

This will only be in operation during the working hours and will be removed at the end of each working day.  

Road closures will be in place on Town Street/Burnby Road, Beilby Lane and Everingham Lane/Blamire Lane during the working hours with signed diversion routes in operation. 

Access will also be provided for residents, emergency services, bin collections and postal services during the resurfacing scheme. 

Councillor Paul West, the council’s cabinet member for environment and transport, said: “Thank you to motorists and local residents in advance for bearing with us while this work is carried out. 

“This stretch of the A1079 is a busy road and needs resurfacing. After the work has been completed, drivers will notice an improvement.” 

Bus passengers are informed there will be changes to bus stops within these works and further detailed information will be provided at each bus stop by the bus providers.
