We are undertaking traffic signal and pavement crossing works to improve traffic flow and air quality at Butchers Corner junction in Malton.

Work began on Monday 27 June 2022 and is being carried out under phased partial road closures with lights between 7:30pm and 5am for 7 weeks.

These works are being carried out during evening and night-time hours to minimise disruption as much as possible to the road network. As a result, there may be some noise disturbance during the evenings, however, this will be kept to minimum wherever possible.

A fully signed diversion will be in place. On-site personnel will assist in managing access to properties and businesses within the closure, however there may be extended periods when access will not be possible due to the nature of the works and physical constraints of the site. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

As this work is part of an extensive programme, some adjustment to the duration of the work may be necessary if unforeseen circumstances such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise.
