Evening closures for road improvements

Roadworks
Motorists in Mytholmroyd are being advised that a section of New Road in the town will be subject to evening closures for five days so that essential repairs can be carried out to the carriageway.
 
The works, which are being managed by Amey on behalf of Calderdale Council, will take place from Monday 19 May, from 6pm until 11pm, and are expected to be completed on Friday 23 May so the route can reopen ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend.
 
The closure will be in place between junctions with Burnley Road and Scout Road. Local residents and businesses have been notified of the works and a diversion route will be signed via B6138 Cragg Vale, Blackstone Edge Road, Turvin Road and the A58 via Sowerby Bridge.
 
Local motorists are also reminded that the nearby Scout Road is also closed while works are carried out to repair damage caused by subsidence.
 
Calderdale Council’s Head of Planning and Highways, Geoff Willerton, said: 
 
“The evening closures are needed to ensure that these essential works can be completed, reducing the need for future maintenance. We will do all that we can to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses in the area while the maintenance is carried out, and thank people in advance for their patience.”
