Major road scheme starts next week
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has announced that work will begin on Monday 12th June on the reconstruction of the Humber Bridge roundabout; the A15 slip road to the A63 ; and the Howden Spur road off Junction 37 of the M62. The work will cost £850,000 and should be completed by mid August.
All carriageway works will take place between the hours of 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday, to minimise disruption to the public.
The first phase of work will begin on Monday 12th June on the Howden Spur road, and will include the removal of the existing road surface, to be replaced by a new surface. It will mean the closure of the Spur road, and the eastbound and westbound exit and entry slip roads from the M62 at Junction 37. During the periods when the slip roads are closed, a 50mph speed limit will be in place on the M62.
The diversion route during the closures will be via Boothferry Bridge and the A614 Goole, entering and leaving the M62 at Junction 36.
When these works are completed, the work will move to the Humber Bridge roundabout and approach lanes, and this is expected to start around 10th July. The work at this location will also involve renewing the road surface and during this phase of the work, road closures will be in place – the A164 to Beverley will be closed for five nights with a diversion route via Boothferry Road, Jenny Brough Lane and Tranby Lane. The exit road from the Humber Bridge will also be closed at the roundabout for a separate period of five nights during the works. Northbound traffic will be diverted through the Country Park car park and Ferriby Road.
The final phase of the resurfacing work will take place on the slip road entering the A63 at North Ferriby with the same treatment as the other sites. This will require the closure of the High Road junction into North Ferriby with all traffic (except emergency vehicles) diverted along the A63 to the Melton junction and into the west end of North Ferriby. This closure is anticipated to be for five nights. The dates of this closure will be advertised in due course.
An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We apologise to motorists for the inconvenience caused by these essential works, although we aim to minimise disruption as far as practicable. All road users will ultimately benefit from replacing the worn out surfacing with a quieter, more skid resistant material.”
