A164 maintenance road works underway soon

THE East Riding of Yorkshire Council has announced the next phase of £1m of maintenance works to the A164, between Ruston Parva and Carnaby.

Commuters and travellers can expect some disruption over the period of the contract, although council chiefs are making efforts to keep this to a minimum

The much need work will form part of the council’s ongoing winter maintenance repair programme.

Following the completion this week of work on the first section between Ruston Parva and Burton Agnes, contractors are scheduled to commence work to improve the section from Carnaby back to Burton Agnes from Monday, January 24.

The work will involve deep structural repairs prior to the laying of a new road surface.

Council bosses beleve that, weather permitting, the repairs will take five weeks to complete.

In order to minimise disruption to road users, it is planned to carry out the work at night, from Monday to Friday from 6pm to 6am.

Some daytime working might be required to avoid freezing temperatures if they arise.

If daytime working is required, it will be restricted to 9am starts, Monday to Friday, to avoid delays to commuter traffic and school buses.

Traffic will be managed using temporary traffic lights and a convoy system to regulate the speed of vehicles and maintain safety for the workforce.
