Seaton Common Lane road improvements

Seaton Common Lane improvements

A road scheme to improve the section of Seaton Common Lane, Seaton Ross, between Campey Lane and Seaton Ross, is due to start on Monday, 2nd September 2013. This is to widen the road to 6.0m (similar to the previous two phases to Ash Lane) in order to accommodate the HGV traffic that uses the route and therefore reduce future high maintenance costs.

The main work is expected to take 10 weeks to complete.

Unfortunately, because of the narrow width of the existing road and the nature of the work, it will be necessary to close the road to through traffic until the work is complete. Work will be undertaken in phases to minimise disruption and ensure access to businesses and properties within the scheme limits.

Access to individual properties will be maintained from either the Campey Lane end or the Seaton Ross end of the site, depending on where the work is being carried out at the time. Emergency services, postal services and refuse collection will be allowed access into the site.

From Monday, 12th August

The main work is to be preceded with improvements to Seaton Common Lane/Mill Lane junction. Temporary three-way traffic lights will be in operation.

Phase 1: Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd September

The tarmac surfacing of the Seaton Common Lane/Mill Lane junction.

Due to the width of the Mill Lane and Everingham Lane junction, the whole of the junction will have to be closed during working hours. The start of work will be delayed until 9am each day, but the council cannot stipulate a finishing time.

Access to and from Seaton Ross on these days will be from the south of the village, via a signed diversion route using the A163 and B1228. Any further work that may be necessary at the junction will be undertaken within temporary traffic control.

The work will be carried out by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Streetscene Services.

The council is currently in discussions with public and school transport companies and will inform residents who live within the site limit of any changes to normal services.
