Second phase of £190,000 road widening scheme to begin in Holderness next week

Mon, 02 Nov 2020

The second phase of a £190,000 scheme to widen a road in Holderness is due to begin next week.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is due to start work on Monday 9 November on the second and final part of the project to improve Warmer Lane, near Easington.

The work is expected to take seven weeks to complete.

During that time Warmer Lane will be closed to all through-traffic, from the gas terminal on Dimlington Road to Out Newton Road, with a diversion put in place.

The council carried out the first phase of the scheme in September and October last year, widening half the length of the road and rebuilding a collapsing drainage culvert.

The second phase will involve increasing the width of the remainder of the road.

While the work is carried out, traffic will be diverted from Easington to Patrington via the B1445, and to Withernsea via the A1033 to Holmpton.

Access will be given to residents living in the work's area and the emergency services.

The work will be carried out by the council's highway maintenance team as part of the council's annual highways maintenance programme to improve the area's roads.

All staff will follow social-distancing guidelines.

Councillor Gary McMaster, the council's portfolio holder for enhancing communities, said: "We'd like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience while our highways team finishes these necessary works.

"We need to widen Warmer Lane because of years of damage caused to the road by vehicles running over the grass verges."
