Resurfacing schemes to begin in Bedale area

Two road resurfacing schemes in the Bedale area are scheduled to begin on Monday, 5 August.

the B6268 in Bedale

Resurfacing on the B6268 in Bedale between the junction with Market Place and Mowbray School is expected to take 14 nights. Work will be carried out between 6pm and 11pm each day, during which time the road will be closed.

Work in Leeming Bar between the mini roundabout at Simply Dutch and the A6055 bridge is expected to take five days. Most of the work will be done between 7.30am and 5pm, though some may take place outside these times to maintain access for businesses and properties. The work will be phased to minimise disruption to the junction between Bedale Road and Roman Road and the mini roundabout. The road will be closed during the work, but a diversion will be in place via the A684 and A6055.

During the road closures for both scheme on-site personnel will manage access to properties within the closure areas, but the nature of the work and constraints of the sites mean there may be delays. No through traffic will be allowed. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Highways, said: “These essential works form part of an extensive programme. We will do all we can to minimise disruption, but we apologise for any inconvenience the work causes. We request residents’ cooperation in helping to ensure the work can be done safely and efficiently and would appreciate it if vehicles are removed from the road before the start of working hours.”

The timing of the work is subject to the weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
