Road improvements to begin in Swinefleet near Goole

Essential road improvements costing £113,000 are to get underway in Swinefleet, near Goole, this month. 

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to invest in resurfacing and patching work to upgrade the roads in High Street and Church Lane.

The scheme is due to start on Monday 13 November and is expected to take up to 10 working days to complete, carried out over the space of four weeks.

The work will include road resurfacing along the full length of Church Lane and part of High Street, between Church Lane junction and Reedness Road, just past Sweyne Garth junction.

Also, road patching repairs will be carried out between the old Kings Head Pub and Church Lane.

To reduce disruption to residents, businesses and road users, the work will be split into three phases:

Phase one – High Street – road resurfacing works are due to be carried out between Riverdale Road to Sweyne Garth on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 November.

Phase two – Church Lane – resurfacing the full length of road, due to happen between Wednesday 13 and Tuesday 21 November.

Phase three – High Street – road patching work between Kings Head to Riverdale Road, due to take place between Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 December, after Northern Power Grid has installed a new cable.

The work will be carried out by the council’s own road maintenance team.

Councillor Paul West, the council’s cabinet member for environment and transport, said: “We want to thank residents, business people and drivers for bearing with us while this work is carried out.

“We have tried to keep disruption to a minimum.

“People will notice the difference when these road improvements are complete.”
