£435,000 scheme to improve villages’ roads

A major road improvement scheme for two villages is set to begin later this month.

East Riding Council is investing £435,000 in a scheme to upgrade roads near Burton Pidsea and Elstronwick with work being due to start on Monday, November 28.

Three sections of road will be resurfaced at Fieldend Lane and Burton Road in Burton Pidsea, and White’s Close Lane junction near Elstronwick. To lessen the disruption to residents and businesses, the work will be carried out in three phases.

Phase one will see the road along Fieldend Lane, Burton Pidsea, between Southfield Road junction to Jubilee Road, resurfaced. This is scheduled to begin on Monday and is planned to last for up to three weeks. Work will be carried out between 7.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Phase two will see the resurfacing of the road along Burton Road, Burton Pidsea, between Church Street junction and South Bowmar, heading towards Roos. This is due to start on Monday, December 19, for one week before Christmas and will restart on Monday, January 9, for seven days. The work will be carried out between 7.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

During phases one and two, temporary road closures will be in place with a signed diversion route in place for through traffic via the B1236.

The final phase will see resurfacing work at the White’s Close Lane junction near Elstronwick, which is planned to start on Wednesday, January 18, for three nights. Work will be carried out in the evening and overnight, from 6pm until 6am. Road temporary road closures will be needed, with two signed diversion routes in place.

Cars and light vehicles will be diverted via Preston, Burstwick and Burton Pidsea, and HGVs will be diverted via Burstwick across to Hull and up to Bilton via Holderness Road and the B1239.

The work will be carried out by the council’s own road maintenance team.

Information about access will be given to residents and businesses in the area.

Councillor Chris Matthews, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and climate change said: “This work is necessary to improve these roads for the future and our team has worked hard to minimise any disruption.

“We’d like to thank residents and businesses in advance for their patience until this is completed.”
