North Yorkshire County Council’s highways department is carrying out the schemes in Brompton-on-Swale and Catterick.

Starting on Saturday, 22 February, for two consecutive weekends, Bridge Road in Brompton-on-Swale will be closed from 7am to 7pm. Access to businesses will be affected.

Catterick Road on the A6136 near the racecourse will be closed between 7am and 7pm from Monday, 24 February, for one week. Two-way traffic lights will be in place for a short time while work is ongoing to renew three gullies. 

Evening closures will be in place on Scotton Road in Catterick from 6.30pm to 11pm starting on Tuesday, 3 March, for one week. To minimise disruption, there will be no work on Friday or over the weekend. Vehicle access and parking will not be permitted and residents are asked to move their cars before 6pm.

“This is essential work to improve the condition of some increasingly busy roads in Richmondshire,” said County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Access. “Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum and we thank users of these roads for their patience and understanding whilst the improvements are carried out.”
