Junction Improvements Continue in Scarborough

Junction Improvements Continue in Scarborough

Improvements to road junctions in Scarborough are set to continue today.

Work to reconstruct footpaths to the east of Stepney Drive will start today, between 8am and 4pm on weekdays. It will be carried out under temporary traffic light control for eight weeks.

The County Council and Scarborough Borough Council are working in partnership on the scheme, contributing £150,000 each, with the bulk of the funding coming from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership, plus developer contributions.

Executive Member for Access, County Councillor Don Mackenzie, said:

“These much-needed plans to replace a worn footpath will improve safety for pedestrians.

We had aimed to undertake these works during the recent Stepney Drive road closure but unfortunately due to a busy works programme and limited resources committed to schemes elsewhere on the network this could not be achieved.

We would advise drivers to try to avoid Stepney Drive at peak times or allow extra time for your journey and apologise for the disruption these works are likely to cause.”
