Road and path improvements worth £200,000 to be carried out in Cottingham
Road and path improvements worth £200,000 are due to get underway in Cottingham this month.
The investment is being made by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and work is due to begin in South Street, Cottingham, on Monday (8 November).
The work is expected to take seven weeks to complete, weather permitting, and will be carried out by council contractors PBS Construction (NE) Ltd.
Path improvements will begin first on weekdays (Monday to Friday) between 9.30am and 3.30pm from 8 November to 14 December, under temporary traffic lights.
Road patching works will then be carried out on weekday evenings (Monday to Friday) between 6pm and 11pm, from 6 December to 17 December.
While the road scheme is happening, a temporary road closure will be in place, with a diversion route via Thwaite Street, New Village Road, Northgate, West End and Baynard Avenue.
Local traffic will have limited access through the sites during the evening works to ensure the safety of road users and the workforce.
Access will be maintained for residents, business owners and the emergency service, however drivers will need to keep vehicles off the road to allow for the improvements.
The council and its contractors will be consulting with the affected local businesses and residents.
Adam Holmes, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "Although delays are likely during the works, the improvements are necessary I would like to thanks residents and motorists in advance for their patience."
