Emergency road closure – A629, Skircoat Road

Road works signage

Following a major gas escape on the A629, Skircoat Road it will be necessary to close a section of the road to traffic from 5am tomorrow morning (Thursday 17 August). 

Due to the nature of the problem and the depth of the work needed, a short section of road at the junction with Hunger Hill will need to remain closed for 5-10 days.  

Emergency services and bus companies are aware and traffic will be diverted down Hunger Hill for outbound traffic and down Shaw Hill for traffic travelling into Halifax. 

The work will be completed as quickly as possible, but with other road works taking place nearby, disruption is to be expected.
