Essential road maintenance to be carried out in Ryedale

A road near Malton is to close while essential resurfacing work takes place.

B1258 Malton Road at West Knapton closed for roadworks

North Yorkshire County Council’s highways department is to close the B1258 Malton Road, at West Knapton on Monday, November 18, while it carries out maintenance work on the highway. The road will be closed north of the level crossing to Station Road in Yedingham for just over two weeks between 9.30am and 4.30pm on weekdays.

The road links the A64 and Snainton on the A170 and diversions will be signposted from the A64.

The work is due to begin on Monday, November 18 and is expected to be completed by Friday, December 6. However, the work is weather dependent and could take longer if conditions are poor. Access will be maintained for emergency services throughout the maintenance work. 

Barrie Mason, assistant director of highways, said: “We have reduced the working day to try to minimise the impact of these works to the travelling public.

“Please allow extra time for your journeys during these road works or use an alternative route.

“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works will cause, but we are sure those who use this route often will appreciate the improvements we are making.”
