Essential resurfacing work is to take place on Sandside in Scarborough next month.

Resurfacing work taking place in Royal Albert Drive

North Yorkshire County Council has funding from the Government’s National Productivity Investment Fund for carriageway work which will start in early October for one week once the current resurfacing in Royal Albert Drive is completed.

Because of the location, this work will be carried out between 7pm and 2am with a full road closure. A diversion route will be in place.

The County Council’s Executive Member for Highways, Councillor Don Mackenzie, said: “This work has been programmed carefully to ensure the resurfacing work in Royal Albert Drive is completed and that these works are finished before the annual McCains 10k run and the school half-term holidays.

“We have scheduled the work for the evening to cause as little disruption as possible and would like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience and co-operation.’’

Councillor Janet Jefferson, who represents the Castle ward, said: “I am pleased this funding is being used to improve such an important thoroughfare and this will benefit the whole area. I would also like to thank in advance the businesses in the area for their co-operation while this work is carried out.’’
