Details of junction improvements to Stoney Haggs Road, Seamer, Scarborough

Junction improvement works at the Stoney Haggs Road, Scarborough Road, Pasture Lane junction in Seamer, Scarborough will begin on on Monday 26 October 2020. Weather permitting; we expect the work to be completed within six weeks.

The improvements will see the current roundabout replaced with traffic signals. This will greatly improve the safety for pedestrians, due to new pedestrian crossings, as well as drivers.

Temporary 4 way lights will be in use whilst these improvements are made. Where ever possible these temporary lights will be removed at weekends.

Working hours will be predominantly between 7am and 5:30pm weekdays only.  However, carriageway resurfacing will be undertaken during the final week of the scheme over four weeknights between 7pm and 2am. Notification of the weeknight operations will be given by signs erected locally. There will be a signed diversion in place whilst these resurfacing works are carried out.

Access for pedestrians will be maintained all the time. However, at times it will be necessary for pedestrians to use temporary barriered walkways if works are occupying the footways.

There will be vehicle access restrictions as well as on street parking restrictions during working hours.

Progress updates

Work has progressed well.

We have have removed the traffic/pedestrian islands on Scarborough Road both east and west of the junction and applied a temporary surface. We have also started work to widen Stoney Haggs Road excavating and installing new kerbs.

We have installed a new gully on Stoney Haggs Road and ducting has been installed across Pasture Lane and the eastern arm of Scarborough Road to accommodate the cabling for the new traffic signals.

We have had to close Long Lane in Seamer to vehicles as drivers were diverting along here and there were instances of inappropriate threatening driver behaviour towards pedestrians. These instances have been reported to the police. Long Lane is classed as a quiet lane and is regularly used by children walking to and from Seamer & Irton Primary School.

Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst these junction improvements are taking place.
