Following the start of work on the £22 million Beverley Integrated Transport Plan (BITP) at the end of July, the council and its contractor would like to remind residents that a temporary road closure will take effect on Long Lane from Wednesday 21 August.
The temporary closure, which is anticipated to be in place until spring 2014, will see Long Lane closed to through-traffic where it meets the new Beverley Southern Relief Road, however resident access will be maintained at all times from the north end at the junction with Keldgate and from the south end at Woodmansey from the A1174.
Officers from the project delivery team have undertaken a letter drop to residents and businesses affected and will also endeavour to speak to them directly to address any queries and assist with any special requirements.
BITP, which is anticipated to be complete by early 2015, will include the long-awaited and much-needed Beverley Southern Relief Road (BSRR), which will run from the Morrison’s roundabout around the south of Beverley to the A1174 Hull Road, amendments to the Grovehill junction, Swinemoor roundabout and the Flemingate level crossing as well as signing works to reclassify the road network in and around Beverley.
The council would like to thank residents, motorists and the travelling public for their patience and understanding whilst the works are carried out, which, when complete, will help reduce congestion and improve traffic flows in the town.
