The works on Manor Road will consist of excavating the existing carriageway and footway to a substantial depth and reconstructing back to the existing levels; areas of slurry sealing; and replacing various areas of kerbing/channels and ironworks.

The next scheme is in Cottingham Street, and will begin on Monday, 4 January. 2021. Work will be carried out during the day (Monday-Friday, 8am until 5pm) and will take approximately five weeks to complete. The works on Cottingham Street will consist of excavating the existing footway to a substantial depth and reconstructing back to the existing footway level; slurry sealing of the footway and installing new footway drainage works in various areas; and improving existing kerbing and ironworks.

This will be followed by Derwent Road from Monday, 8 February, 2021, for three weeks (Monday-Friday 8am until 5pm). The works will consist of excavating the existing carriageway and footway to a substantial depth and reconstructing back to the existing levels.

The last scheme will be along Moorland Road, which is programmed to start on 22 February, 2021 for five weeks (Monday-Friday 8am until 5pm). Works on the carriageway will consist of excavation of the carriageway to a substantial depth and reconstructing back to existing/proposed levels, along with a section of carriageway patching works from Nidd Street Junction to the end of the carriageway; installation of new kerbing and ironworks will also take place. The works for the footway will consist of excavating the existing footway to a substantial depth and reconstructing back to the existing footway level along with various areas of patching & slurry sealing of the footways, including improving the existing kerbing and ironworks.

During the works, sections of the footway will need to be closed, but access will be permitted for residents, business owners and emergency services. All carriageway works will be constructed under a temporary road closure with a signed diversion route in place. No access to through traffic will be permitted; however residents and business owners, along with the emergency services, will be provided access.

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said : "We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works might cause to road users or pedestrians, but would like to assure them that these works will ensure significant improvements in these areas of Old Goole."
