Road closures and diversions planned to bring ‘repaired’ road up to standard

New road improvement works are to take place in the village of Airmyn, near Goole, later this month following problems with the original resurfacing materials.

Contractors for East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) will carry out remedial works in High Street starting on Monday, June 13.

The project will take five weeks to complete, but the main roadworks will be carried out during the first two weeks, up until Monday, June 27.

The first phase of the scheme will involve replacing damaged kerbing on High Street under temporary traffic lights for a period of one day.

The second phase will involve resurfacing on High Street between the Park Road junction and St David’s Church. This section of road will be closed to through traffic for five days while the work is carried out.

The third phase will involve the road being closed to through traffic between St David’s Church and the southern village boundary for a further five days for resurfacing.

The road will continue to be swept several times over a further two week period as loose chippings can be expected until the material beds in, after which road markings will be replaced.

During all resurfacing works traffic will be diverted around the village along Boothferry Road, Airmyn Road and Rawcliffe Road.

Access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times except for short periods when resurfacing takes place across access points.

The original road resurfacing work was carried out in June last year but failed to meet the required standard.

The new work will be undertaken by council contractor Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd and will be carried out under warranty at the contractor’s expense.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We apologise in advance for the additional disruption these remedial works will cause, but the work is necessary to bring the road surface up to standard.

“We would also like to thank residents, businesses and motorists for their continued patience while the work is completed.”
