Traffic affected by a road closure early next year along the A161 between Swinefeet and Goole is set to be diverted through Thorne.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to carry out major resurfacing and safety improvement work in January and February, 2018, on the A161 between Old Goole and the East Riding County Boundary with the works being carried out in four phases.
A temporary road closure during the first phase will see traffic looking to travel towards Goole along the A161 diverted through Thorne at times, with the exception of heavy goods vehicles.
A spokesperson for East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “The first phase of the works will be between the Barracks in Goole Fields & the Mini Roundabout in Swinefleet Village and involves closing the road between 9.30am and 3.30pm on weekdays for a period of two weeks (subject to weather conditions), because the road is too narrow to remain open safely whilst operations are underway.
“The signed diversion route will be to the south via the A161 Crowle, A18, A614 Thorne and A614 Rawcliffe. HGV traffic will, however, be signed around Thorne via the M180/M18 to avoid low bridges and weight limits in the town centre”.
Phases Two, Three and Four are planned to be carried out under traffic control with the road open to traffic.
The works involves carriageway resurfacing and improvements to kerbs.
The spokesperson for East Riding of Yorkshire Council added: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused to motorists during these works, but they have been scheduled outside of peak hours to minimise any disruption. We hope that road users will bear with us whilst we complete these improvement works.”
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is holding an exhibition to explain the proposed works at Swinefleet Village Hall on Tuesday, 12 December, from 6pm to 7.30pm.
