Carriageway and footway improvements works are progressing well along the A1038, Kingsgate, in Bridlington, and East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding road users and local residents of forthcoming road closures which form part of the scheme.
As part of Phase One of the works, the road is scheduled to be closed from Monday, 28 October for one week (between the working hours of 09.00 and 17.00), whilst carriageway reconstruction works are carried out. A signed diversion route will be in operation via the A1038, Bessingby Road, A165 Carnaby and A165 Bridlington Bay Rd/Moor Lane. The junction of Shaftesbury Road will also be closed for the duration of the work.
Shaftesbury Road, between the A1038 Kingsgate and Cardigan Road, is due to be closed on Wednesday, 30 October for three days (between the working hours of 07.30 and 17.00), whilst carriageway resurfacing works are carried out. A local diversion will be in operation via Kingston Road and Cardigan Road.
Works will continue to progress along Kingsgate to the junction with Bessingby Road /Hilderthorpe Road in three further phases, with road closure dates to be confirmed in due course
Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities, said: “The council would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience the closures may cause and ask for the patience of motorists, road users and residents.”
The scheme on Kingsgate consists of the reconstruction of the existing footway and carriageway, with a new carriageway surfacing being applied which generates extremely low surface noise levels whilst providing high levels of grip. New footway edgings and channels will also be installed to improve the carriageway drainage.
The work is being carried out by Tarmac Trading Ltd on behalf of the council with funding secured from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund. This funding was secured following the submission of a successful bid by the council.
