A total of £300,000 is to be spent on the latest traffic work to be carried out in Bridlington.

Work is set to be completed in three phases on Cliff Street. Between the Cross Street and Promenade junction, and Garrison Street and Marlborough Terrace junction will begin on 19 January, while work on the Garrison Street to Prince Street and Cross Street junction will start on 23 February.

The works form part of the council’s planned maintenance programme which the council argue will see high-quality block paving used in parking bay areas, similar to those used on Chapel Street, as well as resurfacing of the carriageways and the replacement of old ironwork and road markings.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council principal engineer, Mark Waterson, said: “The Council will make all efforts to maintain vehicular access to businesses and residents but this will not always be possible when the surface is being planed out and put back; pedestrian access will however always be available.”

Work on Cliff Street will occur between 8am and 5pm during weekdays with no expected weekend work,

Traffic will be diverted from the north via Promenade, turning east onto Marlborough Terrace in a new one-way system in operation, while traffic from the west will be diverted via Chapel Street, turning north at the traffic lights on Promenade and traffic from the east diverted onto Marlborough Terrace and is expected to last five weeks.

Work on the Garrison Street to Prince Street / Cross Street junction will also occur between 8am and 5pm with no weekend work planned.

Traffic will be diverted from the west via Cliff Street, turning North onto Marlborough Terrace and turning south onto Promenade and Cross Street. The work is anticipated to be completed by March in order to avoid disruption during the Easter school holiday period.
