Since early July Yorkshire Water have been moving water supply assets in Bridlington in order to facilitate East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s project to improve vehicle and pedestrian access around the town centre.
Yorkshire Water’s contractors Morrison Utility Services (MUS) are now ready to start the final phase of the project during week commencing 10 October. This will take around 12 weeks and involves the section of Hilderthorpe Road between Springfield Avenue and Station Road.
MUS will begin laying a new water main in the footpath and verge of Hiderthorpe Road, between the junction with Station Road and the entrance to the coach park.
Next they will lay the final section of new water main in the carriageway of Hilderthorpe Road between the coach park entrance and the junction with Springfield Avenue. One lane of Hilderthorpe Road will be closed for safety reasons and a temporary one-way system in place. Vehicles will only be able to travel down Hilderthorpe Road from Station Road towards the seafront. A diversion route will be in place for traffic approaching from the seafront end of Hilderthorpe Road along Springfield Avenue, Station Avenue and Station Road.
The lane closure will also mean that the junctions between Hilderthorpe Road and Savage Road, Hamilton Road, New Burlington Road, Olinda Road and St Hilda Street will also be closed and a diversion route will be in place along East Road and Cardigan Road.
Access to the coach park, local businesses and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
Joshua Thackray Yorkshire Water Project Manager said, “We will try and complete the work as soon as possible and would like to thank residents and business owners for their cooperation whilst we have been working in Bridlington.”
