East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding motorists that the next phase of the ongoing £600,000 scheme of road improvements on the A614 between Welham Bridge and Holme on Spalding Moor will mean a total closure of the A614 from 08.00 on Saturday morning, 16 June, until 21.00 on Sunday, 17 June.
The closure will be from Port Royal through Holme on Spalding Moor to the mini roundabout with the A163. Access to Port Royal will be from the Howden end of the closure. Residents within this area should liaise with the traffic management officer on site to gain access to and from their property.
The closure is necessary to allow for a safe working area whilst carrying out surfacing works on the A614 through the narrowest section of the road within the village.
Diversions will be signed for southbound traffic from Shiptonthorpe Roundabout on the A1079 past Market Weighton onto the A1034 to South Cave, then west along the A63 and M62 to the Howden junction. Northbound traffic will be signed from the M62 and Howden, east along the M62 and A63 to South Cave, then North on the A1034 to Market Weighton. Non-motorway traffic will be diverted along the B1230 between Howden and the A63 at North Cave.
The work is being carried out by Britcon Limited on behalf of the council, and is funded by a contribution from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund. This funding has been secured following the submission of a successful bid by the council.
The improvement works on the A614 are scheduled to be fully completed by the end of June, weather permitting.
An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We apologise for the inconvenience caused to motorists during this road closure. We hope that road users will bear with us whilst we complete this very important project.”
