A161 Old Goole to Eastoft Major Carriageway Improvements

A161 Old Goole to Eastoft Major Carriageway Improvements Resurfacing works are due to commence on 8th January 2018 on sections of the A161 between South Park Road junction and Adlingfleet Grange, with minor preparatory works in Swinefleet village taking place in advance of this. The -work will be carried out by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Streetscene Services and is expected to take about 8 weeks in total to complete (weather permitting). Resurfacing will be carried out in 4 phases as follows –

Phase 1 – Warpingdrain Bridge to Swinefleet mini roundabout/Church Street.

Commencing Monday 8th January with a base layer west of Fisk Road with the road open to traffic but under convoy control until Friday 12th January.

A road closure is then required for the following 2 weeks commencing
Monday 15th January until Friday 26th January
where the road is narrower in the village section and for the laying of surface courses, this will operate Monday to Friday 09:30hrs to 15:30hrs.
The road will be open outside these hours to allow the passage of commuter and school traffic.

Note night time closures and working have been considered but the levels of unavoidable noise generated by the works would be unacceptable in this residential length. Signs will be erected 2 weeks prior to the closure to give advanced warning to the road users.

Phases 2, 3 and 4 in the following order;
  • Phase 2 – South Park Road to Earnshaws Drain Bridge around 1 week duration
  • Phase 3 – 1.6 Km length west of and including Ousefleet Cottages Bend around 2 weeks duration
  •  Phase 4 – Re-kerbing inside of bend at Adlingfleet Grange around 1 week duration

Roads widths on these 3 phases allow safe working with the road open under traffic signals and with vehicles following a convoy vehicle through the working area at 10mph maximum; working hours 07.00 to 17.00 Monday to Friday.

It is accepted that Phase 1 works will cause major disruption to residents and businesses particularly to those in the Swinefleet area and we would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused; however the above working arrangements are thought to be the best compromise available to construct the works quickly, safely, without disruption to sleep and at reasonable cost.

There will also be a long term benefit for the Village as the road will be surfaced with an extremely quiet and skid resistant road surface similar to that at the recently resurfaced A614 at Howden.

Officers will be exhibiting further details of the works at Swinefleet Village Hall on Tuesday 12th December at 6pm to 7.30pm and all affected are invited to attend.

Further updates may be given as the scheme progresses but please don’t hesitate to contact  should you have any queries, require further information, or have any special or specific access requirements.
