NIGHT-TIME ROAD CLOSURES NEXT WEEK AS PART OF WILLERBY ROUNDABOUT IMPROVEMENTS

A week of night-time road closures are to take place as part of the final improvement works to Willerby Roundabout. 

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is nearing the completion of the £1.9 million Willerby Roundabout Improvement Scheme with the aim of easing congestion at the A164/B1332 roundabout. 

The project is due to finish this month. As part of the final works, a six-night closure is needed to allow a full resurfacing of its road to be carried out. 

The roundabout will be closed overnight from Monday 15th to Saturday 20th April between 8pm and 6am.

The roundabout will reopen in the daytime. 

Diversion routes will be in place. Northbound on the A164, the diversion is via A1034 South Cave or A1165 Boothferry Road, southbound on the A164 the diversion is via B1233 Harland Way. 

The new traffic signals are planned to be commissioned and programmed on Wednesday 24th April and this may lead to further delays during this process.

The Willerby Roundabout scheme started in September last year and was due to finish in February, but wet weather over autumn and winter forced its completion to be delayed until this month. 

The team working on the roundabout also came across buried drainage and service pipes which were not on underground plans. 

The project has involved enlarging the roundabout and introducing traffic signals, as well as carrying out lane additions and reallocations, which are all designed to increase the capacity of the junction in order to reduce queues and delays for traffic. 

Councillor Gary McMaster, the council’s cabinet member for housing and infrastructure, said: “We’d like to thank drivers and residents for bearing with us during these nighttime road closures as we enter the final stages of this scheme. 

“The closures are essential for us to be able to resurface the road around the roundabout. We have made sure these take place at night to avoid the most disruption. 

“When this project is complete, we hope drivers will experience a much-improved roundabout and suffer far less queuing at this roundabout.” 

The scheme is being carried out on behalf of the council by contractors Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd.
