East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to carry out major resurfacing and safety improvement work in January and February, 2018, on the A161 between Old Goole and the East Riding County Boundary. The works will be carried out in four phases.
The council is holding an exhibition to explain the proposed works at Swinefleet Village Hall on Tuesday, 12 December, from 6pm to 7.30pm.
The first phase of the works will be between the Barracks in Goole Fields & the Mini Roundabout in Swinefleet Village and involves closing the road between 9.30am and 3.30pm on weekdays for a period of two weeks (subject to weather conditions), because the road is too narrow to remain open safely whilst operations are underway. The signed diversion route will be to the south via the A161 Crowle, A18, A614 Thorne and A614 Rawcliffe. HGV traffic will, however, be signed around Thorne via the M180/M18 to avoid low bridges and weight limits in the town centre.
The second phase will be between South Park Junction in Old Goole and Goole Hall, the third between Old Lane Junction, Reedness, and Pasture Farm, and the fourth phase will be opposite Adlingfleet Grange Farm.
Phases Two, Three and Four are planned to be carried out under traffic control with the road open to traffic. The works involve carriageway resurfacing and improvements to kerbs. The works will be carried out by the council’s Streetscene Services and by Tarmac.
An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused to motorists during these works, but they have been scheduled outside of peak hours to minimise any disruption. We hope that road users will bear with us whilst we complete these improvement works.”
