These works are now complete - thank you for your patience whilst we carried out the essential works.  

Essential work on the A19 Tees Viaduct is set to get underway which will improve safety and maintain essential parts of the flyover structure.

From Friday 1 April, we will be replacing four joints on the slip roads of the viaduct. The joints allow the bridge to naturally contract and expand in differing weather conditions and with movement from traffic. Once the work has finished, the joints in this section of road should not need replacing again for at least 25 years.

While the replacement work on the northbound side of the viaduct takes place, there will be weekend overnight closures to the slip roads carrying traffic from the A66 both eastbound and westbound to the A19 northbound carriageway.

The work on the southbound side of the viaduct will require the closure of the slip road from the A19 southbound to the A66 eastbound.

The northbound slip roads will be closed as follows:

  • From 9pm on Thursday 31 March to 6am on Friday 1 April
  • From 9pm on Friday 1 April to 6am on Monday, 4 April
  • From 9pm on Thursday 7 April to 6am on Friday 8 April
  • From 9pm on Friday 8 April to 6am on Monday, 11 April
  • From 9pm on Thursday 21 April to 6am on Friday 21 April
  • From 9pm on Friday 22 April to 6am on Monday, 25 April

The southbound slip road and lane 1 of the A19 southbound on the viaduct, will be closed as follows:

  • From 9pm on Thursday 28 April to 6am on Friday 29 April
  • From 9pm on Friday 29 April to 6am on Monday 2 May.

From 9pm on Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May, the A19 southbound carriageway will be closed after the exit to A1046 to allow for a crane to be lifted into place.

All work is weather dependent.

 

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.

What are we doing?

How are we doing it?

We are still making detailed designs for this work, settling required land purchase and responding to concerns from the public.  However, we expect the scheme to start construction in the next 12 months and anticipate only needing lane closures.

If you wish to discuss the scheme further, please contact National Highways at A66CumbriatoBowesGaps@HighwaysEngland.co.uk

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 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 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.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the A61 Westwood, M1 Junction 36 northbound and
southbound.

What are we doing and when?
We are carrying out essential electrical work overnight on the A61 from M1 J36 to Tankersley Manor junction to refurbish street lighting with anti-vandal low energy LED units. At the same time, we will be carrying out work to install a new power supply to nearby traffic signals located at the M1 junction 36 northbound exit.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

To safely complete this work, we will need to manage traffic in the following way:

  • We will fully close the A61 eastbound overnight from 8pm until 6am for the electrical work from 17 January to 16 February followed by an overnight westbound closure from 17 February until the 17 March 2022.
  • When we can, we will carry out some of the work under lane closures where this is possible.
  • During closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the local authority and police. Motorway traffic will be signed to the M1. Non motorway traffic will be signed to diversions along local roads.

We're carrying out maintenance work on the M18 northbound between junctions 2 and 4. This work will
ensure that the carriageway is maintained in good condition for smoother and safer journeys.

What’s happening and when?
We’re renewing the road surface on the M18 northbound; we expect the work to start on Friday 14 January and aim to complete by Monday 14 February 2022. We will be working overnight during the week from Monday to Thursday, 9pm until 6am. We will also be working weekends from Friday at 10pm until Monday at 6am to allow deeper patches of surfacing to cool before reopening the carriageway.

We will not be working the weekend of the 4, 5, 6 February and there will be some weekday nights when we may not be on site; we can’t carry out this work in bad weather so our plans may change in the event of any delays.


Closures, restrictions, and diversions
During the work we’ll need to close the M18 northbound between junctions 2 and 3, and junctions 3 and 4, but we will not close both sections of the M18 at the same time: -

  • Monday to Thursday from 9pm until 6am each night
  • Friday 10pm until Monday 6am

A fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the police
and local authority.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the M1 Rainstorth Bridge, located between junction 34 and 35. This work will make sure that the bridge remains in good condition reducing the need for
further work in the future.

What’s happening and when?
We’re replacing life expired steel grills, supporting angles and service ducts which allow inspection and servicing access to parts of the structure. We plan to start work on Tuesday 4 January and aim to complete on Saturday 5 March 2022. We will be working overnight between 10pm and 5am Monday to Saturday,
northbound and southbound, but not at the same time. On some evenings, we may start later to consider traffic leaving events held at Sheffield Arena.

We cannot complete this work in extreme weather; if there are any delays, we will keep residents up to date via National Highways website and social media channels.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out this work safely we’ll need to close the M1 between junction 34 and 35, on one side of the carriageway and lanes 2, 3 and 4 on the opposite side. During closures, lane 1 on the opposite carriageway will remain open to traffic. A 50mph speed limit will be in place for the safety of our staff and road users.

Once we have completed this first phase of work, we will switch to the other side of the M1, closing one side of the carriageway and lanes 2, 3 and 4 in the opposite direction, leaving lane 1 open to traffic with a 50mph speed limit in place. A fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with police and the local authority.

  • Southbound traffic will use the A629 and the A6109 before re-joining the M1 at Meadowhall Interchange.
  • Northbound traffic will use the A6109 and A629 before re-joining the M1 at junction 35.

We are carrying out essential maintenance on a bridge which takes the A640 (New Hey Road) over the M62 between junctions 23 and 22. This follows on from interim work carried out during 2021 which included reducing the A640 to a single lane carriageway and the installation of semi permanent traffic lights.

What are we doing and why?
We now plan to return to strengthen the bridge by adding additional steelwork. This will ensure the bridge is reliable and safe to use.

When will this work take place?
We aim to start work on Monday 14 February and plan to finish by the end of March 2022, we will be working overnight from 8pm until 6am. We may need to reschedule in the event of bad weather. If we need to make changes, we will keep customers updated on National Highways website and social media.

Road closures and diversions
To complete the work safely we will need to close part of the A640 (New Hey Road) overnight between 8pm and 6am Monday to Friday (we will also work one Saturday). The bridge will remain open to traffic and pedestrians during the day. At the same time, we will also need lane closures on the M62 to access the girders underneath.

Once we have completed the steel installation, we will then review the current single lane carriageway and traffic light arrangement to see if it is still required. We may need to return to remove that traffic management and those dates will be finalised towards the end of the steel work. A fully signed and approved diversion will be in place via Quebec Road, Rochdale Road, Slaithwaite Gate, Halifax Road, Round Ings Road.

Due to recent storms work planned for February, did not go ahead. We now have new dates when we plan to complete the work. 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. This work is essential; we must complete it to ensure that this section of the A1 is reliable and safe to use for customers while reducing the need for unplanned road closures in the
future.

We will close the A1 for a weekend and midweek overnight on:

  • Southbound – From 9pm Friday 18 March to 6am Monday 21 March
  • Southbound – From 9pm to 6am, Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 March

The work is weather dependent; should there be any further delay due to adverse weather conditions we will update customers via social media.

Closures and Diversions
During all the closures a fully signed diversion will be in place, and this has been agreed in advance with the police and local authority. We are working with partners to reduce motorway traffic on the local network by providing advanced warnings on the M1, M62 andA1M across the region.

All traffic

  • For the Southbound closure HGV/Motorway traffic travelling south will be diverted off the A1M at Junction 32a near Ferrybridge onto the M62 and M18.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the M62 J30-J31 Ellentrees Bridge parapets. This work will ensure that the bridge remains in good condition reducing the need for unplanned works in the future.

What’s happening and when?
We’re replacing life expired parapets and associated safety fencing. We plan to start work on Tuesday 8th February and aim to complete by Friday 18th March 2022. We will be working during the night from 8pm to 5am, Monday to Friday.

We cannot complete this work in extreme weather; if there are any delays, we will keep residents up to date via National Highways website and social media channels.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions
To carry out this work safely and quickly we’ll need to close the hard-shoulder over the bridge on both the Eastbound and Westbound carriageways, 24hrs a day for the duration of the work. Lane 1 and Lane 2 will be closed on both carriageways at night to allow access and delivery of materials until the essential repairs are fully completed.

Lane closures on Church Lane below the bridge are required to install and remove temporary edge protection fencing at the start and at the end of the scheme. The lane closures will be carried out at night.

Additional information
There may be a temporary increase in noise levels while we complete the work but we’re working hard with our supply partners to keep disruption to a minimum. When working overnight, we’ll try to finish the noisiest parts before 11pm where we can and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.

We need to replace the lighting and associated infrastructure on the A19 slip roads at the Killingworth junction.

To do this safely, we need to use overnight (8pm to 6am) full closures. Work will start on 21 February and finish at the end of April. We will be working overnight Monday to Friday only with no weekend working.

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

Traffic will be diverted via the A189 at Annitsford and via the Holystone roundabout.

Access to the emergency care hospital will be maintained at all times.

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're replacing the existing wire rope barrier with a new concrete safety barrier between junction 60 (Bradbury) and junction 61 (Bowburn).

To do this safely, we need to close the carriageway in alternate directions, overnight between 8pm and 6am.

The latest planned closures are:

  • 10 and 11 February - southbound J61 to J59 full closure
  • 13, 14 and 15 February - northbound J59 to J61 full closure
  • 16, 17 and 18 February - southbound J61 to J59 full closure

Clearly signed diversion routes are in place during closures.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the M62 All Saints Interchange (also known also as Whitley Bridge Interchange). This work will ensure that the bridge remains safe and in good condition, reducing the need for unplanned works in the future.

We’re replacing the life expired parapets at All Saints Interchange, junction 34; we plan to start work on Monday 28 February and aim to complete by 24 June 2022. We will be working overnight Monday to Friday from 8pm to 6am.

We cannot complete this work in extreme weather; if there are any delays, we will keep residents up to date via National Highways website and social media channels.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

To carry out this work safely and quickly we’ll need to close a section of the M62 overnight, eastbound and westbound, but not at the same time. The closures will take place between the exit slip road and entry slip road at junction 34, on selected nights.

There will be bridge deck closures overnight both northbound and southbound, with diversions in place.

We will fully close the entry and exit slip roads overnight while we work, both eastbound and westbound, but not at the same time. During the day, for the safety of all road users, lane closures will be in place.

Fully signed diversions will be in place which have been agreed in advance with police and the local authority.

We're carrying out essential electrical maintenance work on the A160 between Brocklesby Interchange and Manby Roundabout. This work will ensure that the lighting remains safe and in good condition, reducing the need for unplanned works in the future.

What's happening where and when?

We’re replacing life expired LED units on the A160 between Brocklesby Interchange and Manby Roundabout. We plan to start work on Monday 7 March and aim to complete by Friday 18 March.

We will be working overnight from 8pm to 6am. We may also work overnight over the weekend should there be any delays and staff resources become available.

We cannot complete this work in extreme weather; if there are any delays, we will keep residents up to date via National Highways website and social media channels.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

To carry out this work safely we will need to close the A160 overnight, eastbound, and westbound but not at the same time.

A fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the police and local authorities.

  • A160 Eastbound Closure – A180 Brocklesby Interchange to Harbrough Roundabout – eastbound divert to A180, Stallingborough Interchange, A1173 and A160 Manby roundabout.

 Additional information

We are aware of other work on the A180 and have considered that during the planning for this electrical work. This is a separate road scheme and those affected have already been contacted about this work.

Essential road maintenance at M1 Howarth Hall Interchange South Bridge, junction 33 was originally planned to start in September 2021. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to complete the
repairs.

We're now 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. We expect to start work on Friday 11 March and aim to finish by Friday 18 March. We will
complete the work in 2 phases:

  • Phase 1 - We will close the road and work the full weekend from Friday 11 March at 8pm though to Monday 14 March at 6am.
  • Phase 2 - We will work overnight using lane closures from 8pm to 6am each night starting on Monday 14 March aiming to finish on Friday 18 March.

During the day the road will be open as normal. We cannot carry out this essential maintenance in wet weather and will need to adjust our schedule in the event of persistent rain. We will keep customers informed of any delay through our social media channels.

Closures, restrictions, and diversions

Phase 1

To carry out this work safely, we will fully close the southern part of the interchange and the northbound exit slip road at junction 33 over the weekend. A fully signed diversion will be in place, and this has been agreed in advance with the police and local authorities.

  • Traffic planning to exit at M1 J33 for the A630/Sheffield will be diverted to junction 34 and the A631, Europa Link Road onto the A630 or Poplar Way
  • M1 northbound traffic at Rotherway Roundabout will divert onto the A630, A6178 and M1 J34

Phase 2

We will then work overnight mid-week under lane closures while we complete the work on the southern of the interchange at junction 33. One lane will remain open to traffic.

We have worked closely with local councils to keep disruption to traffic and residents to a minimum and apologise in advance for any inconvenience the work may cause.

We're carrying out essential maintenance work on the M621 westbound entry slip road, at junction 1
located off the A6110 Ring Road, at Burger King.

What are we doing and when?

We’re carrying out resurfacing work on the M621 junction 1 entry slip road to ensure smoother and safer journeys for customers. We plan to start work on Friday 18 March and aim to finish on Monday 21 March: we’ll be working over a full weekend from 8pm on Friday until 6am on Monday. We cannot carry out this work in bad weather.

Closures and Diversions

To complete the work safely we will close the M621 westbound entry slip road from 8pm on Friday 18 March until 6am on Monday 21 March. For the safety of our workforce, we will also close a section of the M621, lane 1 westbound, during the work.

There will be a fully signed diversion in place agreed in advance with the local authority and police. Traffic will be directed eastbound onto the M621 to junction 2 to join the westbound carriageway.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that this essential work and diversion may cause. Although increased journey times should be minimal, we do advise customers to allow extra time when travelling in the area.

From Monday 4 April, works to repair the northbound carriageway on the A19 Thirsk bypass, between the A170 York Road Interchange and A61 South Kilvington Interchange will begin.

Work will also take place to renew the joints on York Road Underbridge, Kilvington Underbridge and Thornborough House Underbridge.

The work is expected to take two weeks.

To carry out the work safely and efficiently, the northbound carriageway will be closed overnight between 8pm and 6am. A daytime speed limit of 50mph will be in place due to traffic running on a temporary surface.

Traffic will be diverted from the A19 along the A170 and A61 Stockton Road during the closures.

All works are subject to weather conditions and any unforeseen circumstances.

A scheme to renew the traffic signals at the Carrville junction is underway and should be complete by May 2022.

The current equipment has reached the end of its working life and we need to make sure that it continues to be reliable. We are replacing all the signal equipment and introducing new high-level signals to improve the visibility on approach to the roundabout.

The works will require lane closures and some full closures, details of the full closures are below. Signed diversions will be in place, please plan your journey and allow extra time.

Wednesday 16 March to Friday 18 March – full closure

Wednesday 30 March to Thursday 31 March – full closure

Thursday 7 April to Friday 8 April – full closure

We need to renew the footpath and some of the kerbs at Sedbury layby due to significant wear.  This will improve pedestrian safety when using the footpaths and moving around the layby.

To do this work safely, we need to fully close the layby overnight (5pm-6am).  We expect to start on Tuesday 19 April 2022 and for it to take approximately 10 weeks (Mon. – Fri.).

Portions of the layby where the footpath has been excavated will remain closed during the day until the concrete has cured to its full strength.  Pedestrian diversion will be in place where necessary. The rest of the layby will remain open during the day as will the café.

As with much of our work, the new concrete can only be poured in certain weather conditions, therefore the project may be extended if the weather is bad. 

These works are now complete - thank you for your patience whilst we carried out the essential works. 

We carrying out maintenance work on Belmont Bridge which spans the A1(M) on Broomside Lane. This work will ensure that the bridge is maintained in good condition and continues to serve the community for years to come.

We are renewing the bridge joints at both ends of the bridge. We are due to start work on Tuesday 19 April 2022 and expect the work to last about 3 weeks.

The bridge joints are an essential part of the joint which allow the bridge to expand and contract with changes of temperature and vehicle movements across the bridge; as it is designed to do. There will be some noise as we need to dig out the old road and concrete around the joint. This period will be in first few nights of work and will be kept to a minimum where possible.

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

Closures, restrictions and diversions

We have identified two additional concrete repairs which will mean we need to fully close the bridge for an additional 2 nights of work with a further closure to install the anti-skid treatment.

  • Thursday 28 and Friday 29 April for additional concrete repairs. We already have signs out about the closure on approaches to the bridge and on the bridge, itself. Diversions via the A690 will be in place when the bridge is closed.
  • Thursday 5 May to install the anti-skid treatment around the new joints.

The remainder of the works will be carried out with two-way traffic lights in place.

We will be working 7 days a week with the exception of the early May Bank Holiday weekend. If we are delayed due to wet weather, we may need to extend the project to complete the work.

We need to carry out urgent repairs to the eastbound carriageway between Long Newton to Elton.
