Road embankment scheme worth £700,000 due to begin near Goole

Andrew has provided an updated on road improvement works taking place near Goole.

Andrew explains, "I am informed that, due to damage caused by the flooding back in early 2020, a section of the embankment and road to the south of the Gyme Corner roundabout is in urgent need of repair.

"As such, East Riding Council are investing £700,000 for an improvement scheme to stabilise the road embankment along part of the A614 Thorne Road near East Cowick.

"I understand that work is due to begin today and is expected to take 21 weeks to complete. Work will include widening the existing embankment, which will allow for a new safety fence to be constructed, the installation of a new drainage system and reinstatement of the road.

"East Riding have stated that the scheme will require temporary traffic signals for the 21-week duration of the work, to keep traffic flowing during construction. Moreover, a temporary road closure will be required for the final road surfacing in late June.

"Initially the vegetation at either side of the A614 will be removed once a temporary access has been created at the site. Construction of the embankments will begin from the end of February until early May.

"They add that, once the embankments have been constructed, work will continue on providing a new drainage system for the road with new kerbing, safety fencing and road surfacing completing the scheme by early July."
