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 began on Monday 26 October 2020.

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.

Will be installing new traffic lights on weekdays during the week commencing 25 January. 

Surfacing and lining works will then take place from 7pm to 3am on weekdays during the week commencing 1 February.

The junction will be closed to traffic during these times with a diversion in place. Pasture Lane will remain closed until all works are complete.  

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.
