Two resurfacing schemes are starting this month in and around Catterick and Richmond. This work will require night-time road closures.

Throughout each phase a road closure and a signposted diversion will be in place

The first scheme in Richmond will be done in two phases - phase one Dundas Street and the junction entering Frenchgate and phase two Frenchgate leading to Station Road and Mercury Bridge. Phase one is planned from Monday 19 November to Wednesday 21 November between 6pm and 11pm, weather permitting. Phase two is planned from Wednesday 21 November to Friday 23 November between 6pm and 11pm.

Throughout each phase a road closure and a signposted diversion will be in place and access will be available for residents and local businesses.

The second scheme, also in two phases, involves Richmond Road and Catterick Road. Phase one will be on Richmond Road and Gough Road to the camp centre roundabout. It is planned for Monday 26 November to Saturday 1 December and road closures will be in place from 6pm to 11pm. Between 7am and 5pm traffic management will be in place.

Phase two involves Catterick Road, camp centre to Sandes. It is planned to take place from Monday 26 November to Thursday 29 November between 6pm and 11pm with a road closure and signposted diversion in place. Access will again be available to residents and local businesses.

North Yorkshire County Council’s executive member for highways, Councillor Don Mackenzie, said: “We would like to apologise for any disruption caused and we would thank residents and business owners in advance for their co-operation while this important work is carried out.’’

Councillor Carl Les, who represents Catterick Bridge, said: “It`s important to keep our highways in good condition, residents keep telling us that, but these are busy roads for work, schooling and shopping and I hope the disruption will be kept to a minimum.”
