Road improvements due to begin in Bilton, near Hull, next week

Wed, 09 Mar 2022

A major road improvement scheme is due to be carried out in Bilton, near Hull, from next week.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is investing £220,000 to improve the road along Holmes Lane, between Dawney Road and Main Road, starting on Monday 14 March.

The scheme is expected to take 10 weeks to complete, weather permitting.

The work will involve excavating and reconstructing the current road, as well as resurfacing the footpath on the western side, together with kerbing and drainage repairs.

For the safety of the workforce and the public, it will be necessary to close Holmes Lane, including weekends, between Dawney Road and Main Road, while the road works are carried out.

During working hours, the road crew will endeavour to give access to residents, pedestrians and the emergency services.

A signed diversion route will be in place via the A165 Ganstead Lane and Main Road.

Due to the nature and depth of the works, the council is warning that access to properties may be interrupted, however this scheme will be split into two phases to cater for parking where access is not available.

Council contractors Specialist Surfacing Ltd will carry out the scheme, as part of the authority's annual programme of works.

Councillor Chris Matthews, the council's portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: "We do expect this scheme to cause some disruption, however I want to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience while this work is being done.

"The improvements are necessary in order to keep the road in a good state and, when it's finished, we hope residents will notice these improvements."
