Essential maintenance work is taking place on the B6112 in Stainland, requiring scheduled road closures.
Calderdale Council is to carry out work on Stainland Road from the junction with Bowling Green Road in Stainland, through Sowood to the Kirklees boundary in Outlane. The work is due to start on Wednesday 25 September and involves the planing and resurfacing of the carriageway surface. The work is due to be complete by Friday 18 October.
To ensure the safety of road users and the workforce, it will be necessary to close the road to traffic from 9.15am to 5pm, from Monday to Friday, for the duration of the works.
Residents and businesses along the closure route have been informed and access for those living or working on the road will be maintained where possible in one direction or the other, however there will be no through route.
Access for emergency vehicles and pedestrians will be maintained at all times. Diversions will be in place, with traffic diverted via the B6112 Stainland Road, the A629 Calderdale Way, the A643 Lindley Moor Road and the A640 New Hey Road.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Resources, Cllr Jane Scullion, said:
“We’re carrying out this essential work to improve the carriageway surface and prolong the life of this well used road.
“We know that this road provides access to many village properties and businesses, we’re therefore restricting the closure period to limit disruption as much as possible.”
