Resurfacing work will start on the A165 at Lissett Bridge on Monday, 3 March 2014 and is anticipated to be complete by Friday, 14 March.

The works will cost £80,000 and will consist of replacing the existing road surface followed by crash barrier replacement works.

A spokesman for the highway authority, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The work will be undertaken under temporary traffic signal control and a temporary 30 to 10mph speed limit will also be in operation during the work., with a 40mph speed limit in place for three months after the works to allow for excess bitumen to be worn off the new road surface.

“The council will do all it can to keep disruption to a minimum, however some delays are expected due to the nature of works being undertaken.”

As part of major capital investment by the council for 2014 £135m is to be spent on transport and highways

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of the council, said: “At a time when council revenue budgets are reducing because of large cuts in national government grant funding, it is more important than ever to try to sustain and improve local services and assist local economic growth.

“In the face of continuing economic austerity in the country, the East Riding’s capital programme is a real success story that is increasing investment in our area, sustaining and creating jobs, and resulting in significant savings from the council’s main revenue budget.

“The key focus is on investing to save, so we get the investment and are able to maintain the services through greater efficiency – a win-win all round.” For more information, visit the council website www.eastriding.gov.uk - an extended version of this story can be found at www.drifieldtoday.co.uk
