Drainage Renewal On A64 Between Malton And Scarborough

Drainage Renewal On A64 Between Malton And Scarborough

Published by Karen Liu at 6:02am 16th March 2020.

There is going to be drainage renewal on the A64 between Malton and Scarborough from today.

It will be done by Highways England who say it will be done in two phases.

Phase one will target the flooding problems that regularly occur in Sherburn village and will be carried out alongside the Sherburn crossroads junction improvements.

The planned work involves installing new combined kerb-drainage units and new pipework and manholes to enable a positive discharge of the surface water into the existing drainage network.

The work is expected to take eight to 10 weeks, assuming reasonable weather conditions.

In order to minimise noise disruption for residents and for workers to carry out deep excavations that are needed to improve the drainage, most of the work will be carried out during the day between 8am and 5pm.

For most of the work they plan to use temporary traffic signals at the crossroads.

Wherever possible, these will operate as four-way system and will be manually controlled to effectively manage the flow of traffic.

However, there will be times when it will be necessary to close Sked Dale (the road to the south leading to Weaverthorpe) and have three-way lights in place.

Highways England say they hope that the closures of Sked Dale can be limited to during the day (8am to 5pm). They anticipate that they will be required for three to four weeks.

At times it may also be necessary to close St Hilda’s Street overnight (8pm to 6am). This is not currently envisaged and will only be implemented if they cannot do the work required in this location safely.

Access for emergency services and essential service vehicles such as winter maintenance and refuse collections will be maintained.

Highways England will be carrying out phase two of the renewal project later in the year.

It is a much larger programme of work to renew the drainage from Sherburn through to Ganton.
