Major roadworks on a Bridlington street are to begin on Monday which will see temporary traffic lights in use as well as road closures.

The £535,000, programme on Marton Road is expected to last eight weeks and will consist of resurfacing and reconstructing the existing carriageway.

The work, which is being carried out by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, will also see Ironwork repaired as well as footpath renovation.

The reconstruction of the carriageways will be carried out in seven different phases between Scarborough Roundabout and Sewerby Heads Roundabout.

A spokesperson for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “During the works, every effort will be made to provide access for residents of Marton Road and adjoining cul-de-sacs.

However, some disruption will be unavoidable because of the nature of the works.

“We apologise in advance for any disruption caused, and will of course ensure that it is kept to a minimum.

“The works will, however, lead to significant improvements for all users of Marton Road.

“In order to carry out the works safely and to minimise disruption to the public, residents and shop owners on Marton Road, it is planned to undertake the work from Monday to Friday from 9.15am controlled by traffic signals, with a convoy vehicle in operation.

“However it will be necessary to close sections of the road over five Sundays.”

The Sunday sections of Marton Road will be closed are 15 and 22 February, and 1, 8, and 29 March, between the hours of 8am and 6pm, with through traffic diverted via Queensgate.

Bus routes will be operating during the week as usual; however, during the Sunday road closures, bus stops and routes will need to be temporarily relocated.
