A major £930,000 road resurfacing scheme on the A614, scheduled to last ten weeks, has incorporated overnight closures into its plans to minimise traffic delays.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council will be carrying out major carriageway improvements to the A614 between Hull Road Roundabout (Longs Corner) and Howden Spur Roundabout.
The work incorporates improvements to the main carriageway and Howdendyke Roundabout, from February 22, as part of its ongoing programme of highway maintenance. Work will begin on Monday, February 22, 2016 and is scheduled to take up to ten weeks to complete.
The improvements will include deep repairs at the edge of the carriageway in approximately 300m sections under two way traffic signal control, allowing the A614 to remain open throughout the works.It is envisaged that individual sections of work will be fully completed before progressing to the next section.
The works will progress from east to west along the carriageway, and access to the M62 via junction 37 will remain throughout.
The work at Howdendyke roundabout – incorporating approximately 100m of the south west and north east legs, and a section of Hailgate up to the junction with Treeton Road – is scheduled to begin in the second week of the school Easter holidays (March 28 onwards), and will consist of overnight works for a period of three weeks. The works will require the closing of the south east exit from the roundabout on three Sunday nights (3 April, 10 April, and 17 April), which is foreseen to cause the least disruption to the businesses located to the south east along Howdendyke Road.
Councillor Andy Burton, portfolio holder for planning, highways, and transportation, said: “These are significant works which will greatly improve the road surface for motorists on this section of the A614. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the works themselves, but would like to reassure road users that, throughout the works, an advisory diversion route will be in place on the M62 via South Cave and Market Weighton. This will relieve through traffic, and is intended to reduce delays within the works for those who must use the route for access.”
