Major road improvement works to be carried out near Pocklington

Mon, 13 Jun 2022

Major improvement works worth £380,000 are to be carried out on the road between Pocklington and the village of Burnby later this month.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is due to start road resurfacing along Pocklington Lane, also known as Burnby Lane, on Monday 20 June for up to six weeks.

The resurfacing will involve using a specialist low-carbon technique which will involve recycling the current road and then overlaying it with a new asphalt surface course.

The section of road to be resurfaced is from the village of Burnby to just north of the Pocklington Household Waste Recycling Site.

There will be a temporary road closure in place to ensure the safety of the workforce and the travelling public, with access only permitted for properties within the area of work.

A signed diversion will be put in place, taking traffic via New Street, the B1247 The Balk, Pocklington, the A1079 York Road, Town Street and Burnby Road, Hayton.

Pocklington Household Waste Recycling Site will remain open as usual and access can still be gained from the Pocklington end or the Burnby end.

Signs will advise which route should be used and site operatives will be on hand to provide additional information.

The work will be carried out by contractors Britcon (UK) Ltd/Specialist Surfacing on behalf of the council.

Councillor Chris Matthews, the council's portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: "The improvements are necessary and drivers will notice a big difference once the scheme is complete.

"We want to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience while this work is carried out.
