Road improvement work in Stanhope Street, Goole, postponed until February

Thu, 31 Oct 2019

Road improvement work due to be carried out in Stanhope Street, Goole, in November has had to be postponed until next year.

The resurfacing work planned by East Riding of Yorkshire Council cannot now go ahead next month because Northern Gas Networks needs to carry out urgent work to replace a gas main along Stanhope Street.

The resurfacing was due to start on 25 November, but the council has now rescheduled the work for February next year.

The accompanying work to resurface a mini-roundabout at the junction of Edinburgh Street and Government Street will however still go ahead as planned, with that work due to start on 18 November.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Unfortunately we’ve had to postpone the resurfacing to allow Northern Gas Networks to carry out more urgent work at this site.

“All being well we should be able to start the works in February instead.”

Mini roundabout – Edinburgh Street and Government Street

The resurfacing is due to start on Monday 18 November and is expected to take one week to complete.

Work will be carried out between the hours of 8am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.

During that time Government Street will be closed and traffic will be diverted via Edinburgh Street, Burlington Crescent and Stanley Street.

The council will undertake some minor footpath improvements before the resurfacing starts, under temporary traffic management.

The work will be carried out by the council’s own streetscene services team.
