Drivers Warned of Disruption in Bridlington

Roadworks 600 x 400

Drivers in Bridlington are being warned of a new phase of roadworks starting tomorrow.

They'll be along Hilderthorpe Road, which is being widened and a lane will be closed between Bridge Street and Springfield Avenue.

It's part of the town's regeneration and aims to improve transport in and around the town centre.

The diversion will take you through the town centre and the work's expected to last 12 weeks.

Nigel Atkinson, head of Bridlington Renaissance, said:

"A 12-week programme of work to install new deep drainage and road widening will start on Hilderthorpe Road, between Bridge Street and Springfield Avenue, that will require the need for a lane closure. West bound traffic will continue to use Hilderthorpe Road with east bound traffic following a diversion route. The council is making alternative parking arrangements for Hilderthorpe Road residents and its contractor will be liaising with businesses along Hilderthorpe Road to ensure delivery access is available during the works.

The importance of these works in terms of Bridlington's regeneration and future prospects cannot be understated. They will provide for better transport links for pedestrians, motorists and the travelling public and also open up parts of the town centre for development - allowing for more investment from the private sector, which will benefit the local economy and create much-needed new employment.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the works, some disruption is inevitable and both the council and its contractor are continuing to make every effort to inform residents and visitors about progress and to minimise disruption, wherever possible. This includes monitoring and revising traffic management, when needed.

The council and its contractor would again like to apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and would advise that motorists plan their journey in advance and allow extra time for travel during the ongoing period of work."
