The schemes are:

  • Palace Road- Ripon starting 4 March - for approximately 5 weeks;
  • Otley Road;
  • B6162 Otley Road Pot Bank;
  • Penny Pot Lane / Cornwall Road – Oakdale Bridge to Duchy Road junction;

  • Station Parade;
  • A61 Ripon Road;
  • Spring Lane Pannal; and

Regular updates on progress will be available below.

Warning signs will be in place in advance of the works, indicating the start date and likely duration.

An interactive map gives details of current roadworks, road and lane closures, traffic orders and consultations relating to the searched location.

Background to the improvements

Otley Road has been the subject of frustration for a number of motorists in recent months as it has seen roadworks from Yorkshire Water and the developers in this area. Our resurfacing work will start in this location on 4 March, for two weeks, it has been carefully programmed in with the developers and utilities who are also wishing to carry out further works in part of this area.

Road closures will be kept to a minimum but may be required in some locations. Traffic management will be manually controlled at peak times, in the morning and afternoon, to ensure where possible traffic queues are kept to a minimum.

Week commencing 18 March

The surface course has been laid to the three full width patches. Unfortunately, weather and high winds caused disruption last week.

This week the aim is to complete all patches up to the garden centre and lay patches from Pine Martin Public House to Plantation Road.

On Friday evening the work from Plantation Road to Harlow Moor Road is due to be carried out.

Week commencing 11 March

Unforeseen delays occurred on Tuesday due to a collapsed manhole that was covered by a sandstone slab. The contractor had to work beyond the 3.30pm finishing time, until 5.30pm to ensure the site was left safe.

Work is a day behind at present as some of the work requires hand laying. It is hoped that the time can be recovered further in the programme.

This week contractor will be laying the surface course to all areas planed out and planning out further patches and laying base and binder. Works will be weather dependent.
