Final phase of work on Kingsgate, Bridlington

Mon, 23 Mar 2020

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is about to enter the final phase of work on the Kingsgate Improvement Scheme in Bridlington. This will involve the reconstruction of the carriageway between the B and Q / Hilderthorpe Road junction and George Street.

The work will be carried out from Monday, 30 March for five days between 9am and 5pm. A temporary road closure will be required to ensure the safety of the public and the workforce, and there will be a signed diversion route via Cardigan Road and Shaftesbury Road.

This closure could be affected by Government advice on movement due to the coronavirus, but is currently still expected to go ahead.

Anybody who requires to use their vehicle during these working hours should make arrangements to park outside the work area, as access to driveways will be limited.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities, said : "The council would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience the works may cause, and thank all residents and motorists for your patience during the last few months as we have been working on this major scheme."

The scheme on Kingsgate has consisted 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 have also been 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.
