Maintenance schemes taking place in the Yorkshire and North East region.

Project information

View a maintenance scheme

You can more details about the maintenance schemes taking place in Yorkshire and the North East below:

We are resurfacing the A1(M) northbound and southbound carriageways and hard shoulders between Chester le Street (Junction 63) and Vigo (Junction 64). We are also replacing road markings, studs and traffic loops.

While these closures are in place we’ll also refresh road markings and studs between Vigo (Junction 64) and Birtley (Junction 65).

This work will provide safer, smoother journeys along one of our most heavily-used routes.  The new surfacing will also reduce traffic noise. 

To do this safely, we need to use overnight (8pm to 6am) closures with clearly signed diversions in place. 

Northbound closures:

  • 26 July to 10 August – full closure of the A1(M) from J61 (Bowburn) to J63 (Chester-le-Street)
  • 10 August to 19 September – full closure of the A1(M) from J63 (Chester-le-Street) to J64 (Washington Interchange)
  • 20 September to 25 September – full closure of the A1(M) from J64 (Washington Interchange) to J65 (Birtley Interchange)

Southbound closures:

  • 27 September to 2 October – full closure of the A1(M) from J65 (Birtley Interchange) to between J64 (Washington Interchange)
  • 4 October to 14 November – full closure of the A1(M) from J64 (Washington Interchange) to J63 (Chester-le-Street)

For the latest closures information visit our travel updates section.  

We are resurfacing about 3 miles of the northbound carriageway of the A1 in Northumberland between Newton‐on‐the‐Moor (approximately 5 miles south of Alnwick) and West Cawledge (approximately 2 miles south of Alnwick).

We are using an innovative and more environmentally friendly method called cold repaving. This re-uses material dug out of the existing surface, mixes it with graphene and other materials giving a new road surface which makes journeys smoother and safer.

As we set up and remove the traffic management some junctions will be closed for one night. Local diversions will be in place.

Once we start work, the northbound carriageway will be completely closed with traffic running in contraflow, one lane in each direction, on the southbound carriageway.

The layout of the road and the need to close some crossovers mean that the following restrictions and diversions will be in place:

Newton on the Moor – both accesses from the A1 will be closed. Traffic will be diverted

Shilbottle area – access to the A1 southbound is maintained.

Whittingham area access from A1 closed. Traffic will be diverted

There are a number of residential and business properties which have direct access on to the A1. Each of these has been contacted with details of the restrictions and actions needed to maintain access to their properties. Where needed, our staff will accompany them in and out.

We always try to stick to our published closures but sometimes weather and other factors mean that dates can change.

We will be regularly updating our social media channels - @HighwaysNEAST and https://www.facebook.com/HighwaysNEast/

We’re installing new steel central reservation barrier on the A63 between junction 38 and South Cave.

At the same time, we will also:

  • renew some signs and streetlights
  • improve some sections of verge
  • resurface some sections of the road
  • replace road markings and reflective studs

The new barrier, lighting, signs, road markings and studs will help keep drivers safe as they travel along the route. Journeys will also be smother once resurfacing has been completed.

Work will start on 28 June 2021 and we’re planning to complete it by the end of February 2022. We’ll be working overnight between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday.

To safely complete this work, we will need to close one side of the A63 overnight where we are working. Other parts of the road, where we’re not working, will remain open.

The closures will be in place:

  • From Monday to Friday
  • Between 8pm and 6am
  • On one side of the A63 at a time, including side roads and slip roads

During closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the local authority and police.

Customers who usually join the A63 at Melton or Welton to travel westbound, will need to join the carriageway and head east towards Weston Interchange where they can follow the diversion via the A164 and A1079 to Howden. Signs will be in place when the westbound carriageway is closed. The number of westbound closures will be kept to a minimum.

To keep traffic moving during the day, we’ll open the route in full, but speed will be limited to 40mph and camera enforced. This is to ensure the safety of customers while traveling through the roadworks. Laybys will be closed.

For those on foot, public rights of way crossing points on the A63 will be closed overnight Monday to Friday or when work takes place. A pedestrian diversion will be in place at the two crossing closest to South Cave and a diversion will be in place towards Annies Med lane.

We’re carrying out a series of improvements along the route between the A1(M) and Eastfield roundabout including resurfacing, improving crossing facilities and drainage.

This work will further improve safety and provide drivers with smoother journeys along the route, building on the £22m investment from last year.

Find out more about our A64 improvements scheme.

We’re responsible for the maintenance and repair of the motorway structure which takes the A640 over the M62 between junctions 23 and 22 connecting Outlane and Pole Moor on the outskirts of Huddersfield.

We’ve assessed the structure as part of our routine inspections and identified some repairs that we’ll need to do to improve journey reliability for road users on this route.

We’re busy working with our specialist contractors to develop a suitable design for the repair work but until then we’ll need to reduce the A640 to a single lane carriageway under semi-permanent traffic lights.

We’re starting work on Monday 1 March 2021 carrying out repairs to the manholes during the day under temporary traffic lights for around four weeks. We’ll then install concrete barriers and semi-permanent traffic lights that will remain in place until winter 2021-22.

When we’ve completed the minor manhole repairs, we’ll need to close the A640 overnight for two nights at the end of March between 8pm and 6am to install the concrete barriers, road markings and traffic signals. The dates are still being finalised.

Pedestrian access will be maintained across the structure except during this closure.

A fully signed and approved diversion will be in place via Quebec Road, Rochdale Road, Slaithwaite Gate, Halifax Road, Round Ings Road and vice versa.

Work area for M180 resurfacing

Contraflow diagram

What are we doing and when?
We’re stabilising the concrete carriageway in the hard shoulder and lane 1 and then resurfacing the carriageway. We need to do this as the surface layer is aging. Completing this work will mean safer and smoother journeys for customers.

We’ve had to carry out a number of unplanned roadworks to keep the carriageway open which we know has been frustrating for road users. This new work will stabilise the carriageway for up to ten years reducing the need for unplanned closures.

We expect to start work on Monday 6 September and aim to complete early February 2022. We will be working daytime and evenings including overnight and some weekends; traffic management will be in place throughout.

We cannot carry out this work in wet weather. If there are delays, we’ll keep you updated of any significant changes.

Closures and diversions
At the start and end of the work we’ll need to close the M180 in both directions overnight between 8pm and 6am to install then remove the temporary lanes and barriers for the contraflow. We expect this to take up to eight weeks.

During closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with police and the local authority.

  • Eastbound traffic will leave the M180 at junction 1 via the A18 eastbound and M181 southbound, re-joining the M180 at junction 3.
  • Westbound traffic will leave the M180 at junction 3, onto the M181 northbound then A18 westbound, re-joining the M180 at junction 1.

To carry out the rest of the work safely we’ll work under a contraflow with one lane of traffic running on the eastbound carriageway, and one on the westbound side.

For eastbound traffic, free recovery will be provided for any breakdowns in the work area. For the safety of customers and our workforce, there’ll be a mandatory speed restriction of 50mph enforced with speed cameras.

Throughout the work, M180 junction 2 eastbound exit and entry slips will be closed with a local diversion in place.

Additional information
Some of the equipment we use will be noisy. We will try to complete the noisiest parts of the work in the daytime where we can. We are working with our partners to minimise disturbance for residents and apologise for any inconvenience in advance.

We are carrying out maintenance work on Outlane Bridge, M62 Junction 23. This work will ensure that
the bridge is maintained in good condition and protected from the weather. This work was originally planned to start in September and complete in October. Due to circumstances beyond our control the work was not able to go ahead; we can now provide an update as we have rescheduled the work to start on Friday 5 November under full road closures for four consecutive weekends.


What’s happening and when?
We’re renewing waterproofing on Outlane Bridge off junction 23 of the M62. Waterproofing leaking bridge joints helps to protect carriageway and concrete below from slowly being damaged by rainwater and road salt. This reduces the need for future roadworks in the area. We will be working overnight at weekends to complete the work between Friday at 8pm to Monday at 6am.

  • Friday 5 November to Monday 8 November
  • Friday 12 November to Monday 15 November
  • Friday 19 November to Monday 22 November
  • Friday 26 November to Monday 29 November

Our work is weather permitting and cannot be carried out in wet conditions.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

  • During the work we’ll need to close the M62 eastbound exit slip road with traffic signed and directed to junction 24.
  • There will be a north closure of A640 – traffic will be diverted via M62 westbound to Junction 22, onto the A672 to re-join the A640.
  • There will be a south closure of A640 – traffic will be diverted via A640 to M62 J22, onto the M62 eastbound until reaching M62 J24. Exit will be via A643 Ainley Top Roundabout to re-join the A640.
  • Traffic not suitable for motorway use (E.g.,50cc scooters and farm traffic) will be contained within a holding area and guided through the work area at a safe time.


Some of the equipment we need to use will be noisy; we will try to complete the noisiest parts of the work early in the shift where we can. We’re working with our partners to keep disruption to traffic and and residents to a minimum and apologise for any inconvenience in advance.

 

We are carrying out maintenance work on the A64 at Flixton Carr Bridge between Staxton and Seamer junctions. Our work will make sure the carriageway is well maintained and protected from the weather; this reduces the need for future roadworks in the area.

What’s happening and when?
We are renewing the waterproofing, expansion joints, road surface, markings and studs on the carriageway.

We are carrying out this work in term time, after the school summer holiday, to reduce the impact on two major tourist attractions close by. We expect to start work on Friday 5 November and aim to finish by Monday 29 November. We will be working the full weekend from 8pm Friday to 6am Monday.

We cannot carry out this essential maintenance in wet weather and will need to adjust our schedule in the event of persistent rain.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out this work safely, we will close the A64 between Staxton and Seamer junctions, for the whole weekend.

Fully signed diversions will be in place using the A169, A170 and B1261. These have been agreed in advance with the police and local authority.

The diversion, which has been chosen to minimise the impact of traffic on the rural community, will increase travel time by up to 40 minutes. We advise customers to plan their journeys in advance to allow for extra travel time.

We have worked closely with the council to keep disruption to traffic and residents to a minimum. Some of the equipment we use will be noisy. We will try to complete the noisiest part of the work before 11pm when possible and apologise in advance for any inconvenience the work may cause.

We’re installing a new safety barrier along some 2½ miles of the M606.

To do this safely, we need to fully close the M62 between junctions 25 and 26 overnight (8pm to 6am) for one night on 27 September. This will be followed by overnight full closures (8pm to 6am) of M606 on 28 and 29 for temporary barrier installation

The remainder of the work will be done using lane closures:

  • 24/7 lane closures on link road (lane 2) and M606 itself (lane 3).
  • Overnight additional lane 2 closures and M62-M606 link closures with access to M606 maintained via Chain Bar Roundabout.

When the M62 eastbound is closed from J25 to J26 traffic will be diverted from J25 via A644 Wakefield Road, A62 Leeds Road and A638 to J26 Chain Bar. This will result in an average additional journey time of 10min.

Traffic coming eastbound from Manchester and the North West are advised to consider using the A57, Snake Pass instead.

We need to resurface the southbound exit slip road on the A19 at the Howden interchange. 

To do this safely, we need to close the slip road overnight 8pm to 6am on Friday 15 October and then again on 18 October.

Local diversions will be clearly signposted with traffic being directed to the next junction on the A19 and then via Norham Road and A193.

 

We are carrying out maintenance work on the M62 Altofts River Bridge and Altofts Canal Bridge; we are
replacing the life expired parapets (vehicle restraints system) to maintain safety for road users. 

We are renewing the parapets on both bridges. We started work on Monday 4
October and aim to finish by Friday 26 November.


We will be working overnight during the week from 8pm to 6am under lane closures both
eastbound and westbound. We will also close the hard shoulder 24/7 for the duration of the
work for the safety of our staff and customers.


We cannot carry out this essential maintenance in wet weather and will need to adjust our
schedule in the event of persistent rain.


To carry out this work safely we will close the hard shoulder 24/7, installing a temporary
concrete barrier. We will then work overnight using lane closures with Lane 3 open to traffic.
A 50mph speed limit will be in place so we can carry out the work safely.

We need to improve the drainage on the A194(M) southbound next to Follingsby Terrace, close to White Mare Pool roundabout.

This work will reduce the amount of surface water which currently runs from the A194(M) towards Follingsby Terrace during the periods of heavy rainfall. The work will reduce the risk of flooding at this location.

To do this safely, we need to use overnight (8pm to 6am) lane closures. We will be working between 11 and 22 October and then later in the year between 13 and 17 December. We will be working Monday to Friday only with no weekend working.

The works will inevitably generate some noise which we would like to apologise for in advance.

Although we always try to stick to our published dates, unfortunately some factors such as poor weather can lead to changes in our programme.

We will be regularly updating our social media channels - @HighwaysNEAST and https://www.facebook.com/HighwaysNEast/

 

We need to carry out maintenance work on the M62 westbound Adkin Interchange Bridge, Junction 24, Ainley Top.

Our work will make sure the carriageway and bridge joints are well maintained and protected from the weather which will reduce the need for future roadworks in the area. 

We are renewing the expansion joints, road surface, markings, and studs on Adkin Interchange Bridge.

We expect to start work on Monday 18 October and aim to finish by Friday 23 October. 

We’re working weekday nights from 8pm through to 6am under full road closures.

We are carrying out maintenance work on the M62 Newmarket Lane Bridge; we are replacing the life expired parapets (vehicle restraint system) to maintain safety for road users.

We are renewing the parapets on the bridge which carries the M62. We expect to start work on Monday 25 October and aim to finish by Friday 26 November.

We will be working overnight during the week from 8pm to 6am under lane closures both eastbound and westbound. We will also close the hard shoulder 24/7 for the duration of the work for the safety of our staff and customers. 

We cannot carry out this essential maintenance in wet weather and will need to adjust our schedule in the event of persistent rain.

 Closures, restrictions, and diversions

To carry out this work safely we will close the hard shoulder 24/7, installing a temporary concrete barrier.  We will then work overnight using lane closures with Lane 3 open to traffic. A 50mph speed limit will also  be in place for safety reasons.

Below the bridge, Newmarket Lane will be closed to traffic with a signed diversion in place. This has been agreed in advance with the local council(s) and the police.  

Traffic will be diverted onto the A639 Methley Lane, Leeds Road and Church Side and the A642 Wakefield Road.

Marshals will be in place during the parapet replacement so pedestrians and cyclists can still access Newmarket Lane during the parapet replacement.

We are carrying out maintenance work on the M1 Haworth Hall South Bridge, Junction 33. Our work will make sure the carriageway is well maintained and protected from the weather; this reduces the need for future roadworks in the area.  

What’s happening and when?

We are renewing the waterproofing, expansion joints, road surface, markings and studs on the carriageway.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, changes have been made to the original dates of the essential maintenance work. We will aim to finish the works on 25 October.

We are working closely with Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to establish new dates for the work to take place. Once those dates have been agreed, we will let residents, road users and businesses know. 

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

To carry out this work safely, we will work under alternate lane closures with a single lane open to traffic. This will be agreed in advance with the police and local authorities.  

From 1 November 2021, we are carrying out essential maintenance work on the A64 Barr Lane to Claxton and part of Scotchman Lane. The work includes resurfacing the carriageway, new road markings and studs and gully and manhole level adjustments. 

This essential work will result in smoother journeys for customers.

To carry out this work safely we will close the A64 in both directions between Barr Lane to Claxton overnight from 8pm to 6am, Monday to Friday.  A fully signed diversion will be in place for A64 traffic which has been agreed in advance with the police and local authority; the diversion route has been planned to consider the needs of local communities and will extend journey times considerably – we advise customers to allow more time and plan their journeys in advance. 

We are carrying out maintenance work on the A63 Welton Interchange, off Water Lane and Cowgate. This work will improve the signage, layout and surfacing on the approaches to Welton Interchange.


What’s happening and when?
We are constructing a splitter island, installing new signage, and resurfacing; we will also add new road markings and clear overgrown vegetation. The work has started and should complete by Thursday 23 December. We will be working overnight between 8pm and 6am during the week and selected  weekends. We cannot carry out some of this work in wet weather and will need to reschedule or extend the dates in the event of adverse weather conditions.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out the work safety we plan to close: -

  • A63 westbound carriageway and Welton Junction slips – Saturdays and Sunday nights for 4 consecutive weekends starting 6th November with diversion in place.
  • A63 eastbound carriageway and Welton Junction slips – 26, 27 October and 4, 5 November, the following week 8to the 12 of November and 15 16 with diversion in place.
  • Westbound Exit Slip at Welton Junction – 27 October with diversion in place.

Diversions
Fully signed diversions have been agreed in advance with the local authority and police. The routes have been planned to ensure the least disruption to local communities; this will mean longer journey times and some delays. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.

  •  Eastbound closure (A63 Traffic) – exit A63 northbound M62 J37 Howden to Market Weighton - A1079 to Bishop Burton - A1079 - A164 south to Hessle to rejoin A63 at A15 junction.
  • Local diversion – east - Welton village via Cowgate/Welton - Old Road/Melton Bottom - South Lawn Way to join A63 at Melton.
  • Westbound closure (A63 Traffic) – exit A63 at A15 - Boothferry Road to A164 north - A1079 Beverley bypass - A1079 to Bishop Burton - west via A1079 then M62 junction 37 at Howden.
  • Local diversion – west - Brough via Welton Road/Cave Road to join A63 at South Cave.
  • Local Diversion westbound exit slip road closure stay on the westbound A63- exit at South Cave junction, re-join at South Cave heading east to Welton.

Some of the equipment we need to use will be noisy; we will try to complete the noisiest parts of the work earlier in the shift where we can. Other road works may be taking place in the area at the same time and will share the road closures where possible to reduce the impact on our customers. We’re working
with our partners to keep disruption to a minimum. 

 

We need to infill some steel grill openings in the bridge at Barton interchange. This work will enhance the structural integrity of the bridge and reduce the need for future maintenance.

To do this work safely, we need to have a series of overnight full closures of the A1 between junctions 56 (Barton) and 58 (Darlington) and the exit to A66M

Closures will take place northbound overnight (8pm to 6am) on 15, 16 and 21 November.

When the northbound carriageway is closed traffic will exit the A1 at junction 56 (Barton) and will then be diverted through Barton Village to Blackwell Roundabout, then clearly signed through Darlington to rejoin A1(M) at junction 59 (Newton Aycliffe).

Closures will take place southbound overnight (8pm to 6am) on 17, 18 and 19 November

When the southbound carriageway is closed traffic will exit the A1 at junction 59 (Newton Aycliffe) and follow clearly signed diversions through Darlington to Blackwell Roundabout and then through Barton Village to rejoin the A1(M) at junction 56 (Barton)

Following on from the full closures there will be a lane 2 closure of the A1M in both directions at junction 56 (Barton) for around 5 months.

For the latest closures information visit our travel updates section.  

We're carrying out road stud maintenance work at the A61/M1 Junction 36 Roundabout to A61/A616 Roundabout.  This work will ensure that lane visibility is maintained for the safety of all road users.  

What’s happening and when?

We're renewing road studs and some surfacing on sections of the A61

We plan to work on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 November, completing on the morning of Saturday 13 November.

We will be working overnight to complete the work between 8pm and 6am, starting on the northbound carriageway first followed by the southbound carriageway on the second night. 

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

To complete this work safely we need to close the carriageway and side roads and divert traffic. The diversion has been agreed in advance with the police and local authority.

The carriageway and side roads will be closed between the A61/M1 Junction 36 Roundabout and A61/A616 Roundabout northbound and southbound, but not at the same time.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the A1 Darrington Interchange bridge. Our work will ensure the carriageway and bridge joints are well maintained and protected from the weather; this reduces the need for future roadworks in the area.

What’s happening and when?
We are renewing the waterproofing and expansion joints, road surface and markings on the bridge at Darrington Interchange. At the same time, we will replace the central vehicle restraint barrier over the bridge. We expect to start work on Monday 22 November and aim to finish by the end of January 2022, including a break in December to consider seasonal traffic. We will be working during the week Monday to Friday 8am until 5pm under lane closures, except when we need to install traffic management.

We will close the carriageway on some dates so we can safely set up, change, and take down the traffic management. This will be done overnight between 9pm and 6am. The work is weather dependent; should there be any delay due to adverse weather conditions.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To enable us to carry out this work safely, the A1 Darrington Interchange carriageway will be reduced to one single lane in both directions both day and night, except when road closures are in place. A 40mph speed limit will be enforced. For customer safety, we need to leave the traffic management and lane closures in place overnight even when we are not working, as sections of the vehicle restraint barrier will have been removed. We ask customers to allow additional time for journeys and apologise for any inconvenience this essential work may cause.

During overnight closures a fully signed diversion will be in place and this has been agreed in advance with the police and local authorities.

  • Northbound – A1 non-motorway traffic diverted north via the A639
  • Northbound – A1 motorway traffic diverted via the A6201 (North Elmsall and Ackworth) and A639 Pontefract avoiding low bridges.
  • Southbound – A1 traffic diverted M62 east then M18 south to A1M junction 35
  • Darrington – local traffic will be diverted onto Carlton Road, Moor Lane and B6474
  • Wentbridge - local traffic will be diverted onto the B6474 and the A639

For properties with direct access onto the A1, access up to the closure and onto the diversion route will be maintained.

Abnormal loads - wide loads over 3.25m cannot travel through the road works and need to use alternative routes.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the A180 Stallingborough to Pyewipe vehicle restraint barrier.

What are we doing and why?
We’re replacing sections of the vehicle restraint barrier to maintain customer safety as the existing barrier is coming to the end of its working life. At the same time, we will carry out drainage repairs and upgrade road signs on this section of the route.

What’s happening and when?
We plan to start work on Monday 22 November 2021 and expect to finish work by the end of March 2022, dependent on weather conditions. In the event of any delay, we will keep customers updated on the website and social media.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out the work safely we will close the A180 eastbound and westbound carriageways (but not at the same time) between Stallingborough and Pyewipe Roundabout overnight. The opposite carriageway will also be reduced to a single lane. We will work Monday to Friday 8pm to 6am with occasional overnight weekend working. A fully signed diversion will be in place. This has been agreed in advance with the police and local authority. Traffic will be diverted using the A1173, B1210 and A1136. If working arrangements allow it, we will return diverted traffic to the A180 at Great Coates interchange. A 40mph speed limit will be in place 24/7 in both directions so we can complete the work safely. This will be enforced by safety cameras.

Additionally, some of the drainage repair work will require occasional closures of the eastbound A180 between Brocklesby and Stallingborough Interchange. When this work is being carried out traffic will be diverted using the A160 and A1173. Access for this work requires us to remove the barrier in this location, which means we were unable to carry it out while we had this section of the A180 closed during the summer.

 

We're carrying out maintenance work on the M62 Junction 26 Chain Bar Interchange bridges. Work will
also take place at M606 Chain Bar Interchange bridge. Our work will ensure that the bridges are well maintained and protected from the weather. This reduces the need for future roadworks in the area.

What’s happening and when?
We’re replacing the bridge joints, road studs and white lining on both the north and south bridges at Junction 36 Chain Bar, M62. We’ll also work on the west bridge joint at the interchange, which is located on the M606 southbound link road. The work on bridges will start on Tuesday 16 November and expect to finish on Friday 3 December; we will be working overnight from 8pm to 6am Monday to Friday. To complete
the work safely we’ll put in place a full carriageway closure in one direction with lane restrictions on the opposite carriageway. This work is weather permitting and cannot be carried out in wet or icy conditions.

Closures, restrictions, and diversons

  • Full closure of the M62 eastbound and M606 northbound link road. M62 westbound lane 3 closed.
  • Full closure of the M62 westbound carriageway with eastbound lane 3 closed.
  • Full closure of the M606 southbound to M62 westbound link road.

Fully signed diversions will be in place which have been agreed in advance with Police and the local authority. Traffic will be diverted off/on the M62 at Junction 26 during the full closures. Only one carriageway will be closed at any one time.

 

We're carrying out safety improvement work on the A64 at the Old Malton junction.

We’ll be realigning east and westbound exit slip roads utilising the verge to improve the entries into the circulatory carriageway. We are also carrying out minor realignments of the A169 and B1257 splitter islands and updating the signage to reflect these safety improvements.

In addition, we’re adding lane markings to the roundabout, and making improvements to the footways around the eastbound exit slip road.

What’s happening and when?
We plan to start work on Monday 22 November 2021 and expect to finish work by early March 2022.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out the work safely and to maintain access for customers, most of the work will be carried out during the day using lane closures that will remain in place 24/7. This will allow our staff to safely carry out the work. In addition, a reduced speed limit will be in place.

To complete the realignment of the two A64 slip roads we will need to close each road fully for about a week but not at the same time. We will place signs showing the dates of these closures around the area, once they have been agreed with our contractors. Signed diversion routes will be in place which have been agreed in advance with the police and local authorities.

  •  Westbound exit diversion route - traffic will be diverted off the A64 at the Brambling Fields junction and along the B1248 Scarborough Road to the B1257 Old Malton Road / Town Street to the roundabout.
  • Eastbound exit diversion route - traffic will be diverted further along the A64 to the junction at Brambling Fields where they will then be directed westwards on the A64 to the roundabout.

Near the end of the work, we will also close half the roundabout at a time overnight between 8pm and 6am, to apply the new surfacing and white lines.

Where nightwork is necessary, we’ll try to finish the noisiest work before 11pm to minimise noise disruption as much as we can. 

What are we doing and why?

We are maintaining and improving the safety barriers and parapets at Low Laithe bridge. This work will ensure that our barriers and bridges are well maintained and will improve safety for drivers using the route.

What’s happening and when?

We’re starting work on 22 November and expect to complete the work in December. Sometimes our work can be affected by poor weather conditions and other factors which can delay its completion, but we’ll provide updates on our webpage and social media.

The work will be done mostly during the day, but some will be done overnight.

Closures, restrictions and diversions

To carry out this work safely we’ll be closing the east and westbound hard-shoulder 24/7 throughout the duration of the scheme. There will also be temporary safety barriers in place.

On some nights we’ll need to close lanes one and two of the M62 at the start and end of the scheme. This is to allow our team to safely install and, subsequently remove, the temporary safety barriers and temporary edge protection system on the bridge deck.

The route will remain open for customers.

We're carrying out maintenance work on the A63 between Welton Interchange (Water Lane/Cowgate) and
Western Interchange (Humber Bridge/A15, east of Hessle) in both directions. We’re resurfacing the carriageway and slip roads, and replacing road markings, studs, marker posts and electrical equipment for smoother and safer journeys for road users. We will also clear drainage as we work.

What’s happening and when?
We expect to start work on the eastbound carriageway on Monday 29 November until Tuesday 7 December. To consider seasonal traffic, we will start work on the westbound carriageway on Monday 10 January and aim to finish by Thursday 20 January 2022. We will be working overnight during the week Monday to Friday from 8pm to 6am under full closures.

We plan to have one weekend closure overnight on Saturday 22 January to complete the electrical work on the eastbound carriageway. We cannot carry out this essential maintenance in wet weather. Some of the work we do can also be impacted on by HGV driver and materials shortages. We may have to adjust our schedule in the event of any delays.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out this work safely we will be working under full overnight closures both eastbound and westbound, but not at the same time. We will also close westbound and eastbound entry and exit slip roads at Welton, Melton and Western junctions. Access to the service station will be affected; the eastbound services (Esso) will be closed during the slip road resurfacing.

Fully signed diversions will be in place which have been agreed in advance with the police and local council. The A63 diversion routes, which have been planned to minimise disruption to local communities, will add approximately 20 miles to journeys so we ask customers to allow extra time for travelling.

  • A63 eastbound traffic - exit M62 J37 Howden Interchange A1640, north via B1320 Newport Road to A1034. Then east via A1079 to Bishop Burton, A1079 south to Bentley, A164 south to Hessle to re-join A63 at A15 junction.
  • Local traffic eastbound - east through Welton village via Cowgate/Welton Old Road/Melton Bottom, South Lawn Way/Melton Road, onto Ferriby High Road to join A63 at Western.
  • A63 westbound traffic - exit A63 at A15, north up Boothferry Road to A164, north to A1079 Beverley bypass, A1079 to Bishop Burton then west via A1079 to Market Weighton. Head south via A1034, North Cave and B1320 Newport Road, join M62 at J37 Howden Interchange.
  • Local traffic westbound - North Ferriby via Ferriby High Road/ Melton Road, South Lawn Way/Melton Bottom, East Dale Road/Welton Old Road onto Cowgate/Welton Road to join A63 at Welton junction.

Additional information
There are other roadworks taking place nearby; A63 North Cave to South Cave Safety Barrier replacement and A63 Welton Interchange Improvement. We have planned our operations so that this resurfacing work can be carried out concurrently with these schemes, and where possible, traffic management will be shared to minimise disruption to customers and residents.
