Road closures in Bridlington

Junctions at Beck Hill and Bridge Street will be upgraded - with work starting on Tuesday and expected to take three night.

All work will be carried out after 9pm each night to minimise disruption to motorists and procedures will be in place to minimise noise.

The scheduled work, which is all subject to weather conditions, is due to include:

Tuesday, May 29 – Preparation works will take place to remove the old road surfaces in Beck Hill and Bridge Street.

Wednesday, May 30 – The Beck Hill, Prospect Street and Manor Street junction will be resurfaced.

Thursday, May 31 – The Bridge Street and Queen Street junctions will be resurfaced and road markings will be applied to both junctions.

To enable the work to be carried out, part of Prospect Street, Manor Street, Chapel Street and North Street, near the junction with Beck Hill, will be closed to traffic from 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday only. Bridge Street will be closed to traffic from 9pm on Thursday 31 May. Diversions will also be put in place.

All roads will reopen in the early hours of each morning, and will remain open during the daytime and early evening.

Access will still be maintained for pedestrians, affected properties and the emergency services during the closures.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “These works are essential to improve the road surfaces and tie-in the new works and improve the surfaces at the junctions of Prospect Street, Manor Street and Beck Hill, and Bridge Street and Queen Street.

“Because these are extremely busy junctions we will be carrying out all work at night to minimise disruption to motorists and residents.”
