Essential maintenance on A629 at Illingworth

Roadworks

Calderdale Council is to carry out essential maintenance to the A629 at Wrigley Hill between Morrison’s and Heathmoor Park Road.

The work is due to start on Wednesday 31 July and should be completed by Wednesday 7 August.

The road is being resurfaced, and to ensure the safety of the workforce and road users, it is necessary to close the road whilst the works take place. The closure will take place from 7am on Wednesday 31 July, until 5pm on Friday 2 August, and again between the hours of 7am and 5pm on Monday 5 August until Wednesday 7 August.

Access for emergency services and pedestrians will be maintained throughout the repair work.

Traffic will be diverted via Shay Lane, Holdsworth Road, Riley Lane and Illingworth Road. A number of bus routes will also be affected service numbers 502, 505, 521, 522, 523 and 700 will be subject to diversions. For more information visit www.wymetro.com/travelnews/disruptions(external link)

Calderdale Council apologises in advance for any inconvenience that these essential works might cause. The work has been planned during the school summer holidays when traffic levels are lower to reduce disruption as much as possible. When completed, the works should ensure that this stretch of road remains free from further maintenance for a number of years to come.
