Carriageway Improvement Works - A614

Andrew has been informed that East Riding Council will shortly start major highway improvement works along the A614 between the Portington Road junction near Howden, through Goole to the A645 Drax Road Roundabout near Airmyn.

Andrew explains, "The works will start in March, and will consist of: resurfacing the existing carriageway, with a final running surfacing applied which generates extremely low surface noise levels whilst providing high levels of grip. I understand that drainage and footway improvements will also be carried out as required throughout the works."

Further details from East Riding Council below, which includes the relevant dates, times and locations of the works, can be seen below:

The works will be split into five sections:

• Section One – Holme Road between Portington Road junction and the rail bridge, Howden

• Section Two – Boothferry Road between Howden Spur Road Roundabout and Ferryboat Inn Roundabout, Howden

• Section Three – Boothferry Road/Airmyn Road between Hook Lane roundabout and Landsdown Road, Goole

• Section Four – Rawcliffe Road between Landsdown Road junction and the M62 junction 36 roundabout, Goole

• Section Five – Rawcliffe Road between Glews Garage roundabout and A645 Drax Road roundabout, Airmyn

The £2.4million scheme includes a £2m contribution from the Government’s Getting Building Fund secured by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership following a successful bid by the council.

Work will start on Section One on 1 March, 2021, followed by Section Two on 22 March, 2021. Section Four will then precede Section Three in order to carry out works close to Goole Academy during the school half term holiday. Section five will complete the works to the A614 by the end of July, 2021.

Most of the works will be carried out during the evenings or nights when traffic volumes are reduced, but some daytime work is anticipated within residential areas.

A number of roads will need to be closed during the works to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public. These temporary road closures will be advertised, and residents will be notified closer to the time. The council’s contractor (Tarmac Trading Ltd) will also install advanced signs indicating the dates of the closures.
