A £550,000 scheme to improve the road surface along Hornsea’s main shopping street will get underway next month.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to resurface the full length of Newbegin – between its junctions with Market Place and Cliff Road – with work due to start on Monday 3 September.

The majority of work will be carried out at night, between the hours of 6pm and 11pm, in order to avoid disruption to local businesses and residents.

Newbegin and all routes within the shopping area will be open as usual during daytime hours. No work will be carried out at weekends.

The work is expected to take approximately six weeks to complete.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “To avoid any major disruption, we have timed these works for after the main summer season and the majority will be carried out at night.

“We want to thank businesses, residents and motorists in advance for their patience while the work is carried out, but this resurfacing is necessary as the condition of the road surface has deteriorated.

“Road users will notice a big improvement when it’s completed.”
