Multi-million-pound transport infrastructure works reach critical phase

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and its contractor PBS Construction have reached a crucial stage in the multi-million-pound investment to improve transport links in Bridlington and open up sites for development.

Work on Hilderthorpe Road - between Bridge Street and Springfield Avenue - is now almost complete, with resurfacing of the carriageway taking place over the last few days and - barring some landscaping work and final snagging - will see the road re-open to traffic in one direction from Bridlington Spa at the weekend.

The next stage of the works will start on Monday, 5 February across the junction of Springfield Avenue.

The importance of this work cannot be overstated as it includes the installation of new drainage, which is vitally important in reducing the town's flood risk in the future.

This phase of the project will also see infrastructure for new signals put in as well as improvements to the highway and footpath.

To undertake the works in a safe manner, Springfield Avenue will be closed to access from Hilderthorpe Road. The works are programmed to take place in February and March with the aim of re-opening the area for April.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "Delivering an investment of this scale and complexity was always going to take time and present challenges.

"Throughout the project, the council and its contractor have endeavoured to keep residents and businesses as up-to-date as possible and provide any and all practical assistance and remain committed to doing so until the construction programme concludes later this year."

Beck Hill is still closed to through-traffic in order to facilitate the drainage works, the realignment and rising of the new carriageway, as well as the ongoing construction of the new bridge across the Gypsey Race. However, access to the large car park (Lord Feoffees) is still possible from Prospect Street.

Once again, the council and its contractor would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask that residents continue to support this major project.

If you have any problems during the construction, particularly access, contact Andy Thorley, PBS site manager, who will be happy to assist in the day-to-day access through or around the works.

The site team can be contacted on 07376082397 or 07376 082401.

BridITP2 is jointly funded from the Humber LEP Growth Deal and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
