A66 Road Closures Update 21/7/15

I’ve had a couple of questions today re the resurfacing works currently taking place on the A66 between Scotch Corner and Hartforth, particularly about the Melsonby/Hargill junction, from people who have read the information about the works on your parish website.

The website is kindly showing the initial letter I sent out advising about the works but there has since been a change to the programme, as detailed in an email I sent you on Friday, July 10.

The original plan was to close the Melsonby/Hargill junction (as well as the Forcett and Warrener’s Lane junctions) until July 31 but after discussion with local farmers who need to go back and forth across the A66 during harvest we have changed the programme to be able to keep one of them (Melsonby) open. The Melsonby/Hargill junction will be open 24/7 from tonight.

Drivers coming from Gilling West will be able to come across the A66 and into Melsonby as usual. However, we couldn’t make it safe for drivers to come across in the opposite direction so, when they leave Melsonby they will have to turn left, come round Scotch Corner and back up to the crossroads and turn left towards Gilling West.

If you could update the parish website to reflect the changes I’d be most grateful,

Regards, Vicki

RESURFACING ON A66

A-one+ is the Managing Agent Contractor for Highways England and is responsible for the maintenance of the motorways and trunk roads in this area. On their behalf we would like to inform you of work beginning shortly on the A66 between Scotch Corner and Hartforth.

The work will involve resurfacing the westbound carriageway and will also include safety improvement works at the Melsonby junction.

Construction work will begin on 6 July and is expected to be complete by 4 August, assuming reasonable weather conditions.

A-one+ is the Managing Agent Contractor for Highways England and is responsible for the maintenance of the motorways and trunk roads in this area. On their behalf we would like to inform you of work beginning shortly on the A66 between Scotch Corner and Hartforth.

The work will involve resurfacing the westbound carriageway and will also include safety improvement works at the Melsonby junction.

Construction work will begin on 6 July and is expected to be complete by 4 August, assuming reasonable weather conditions.

The work will take place in three phases, explained below. As part of the works there will be periods when access to and from the A66 is closed for local side roads, which are also detailed below – please note we will have other traffic management setups than those listed below but these will be lane closures only and will not prevent access to and from the A66.

Phase 1 – 9 July 2015 to 16 July 2015

Night time closures only between 20:00 – 06:00. There are also three night shifts, due to take place on 11, 12 & 13 July, where the working hours will be 6pm to 8am – this is due to increased surfacing outputs to enable the works to be completed more quickly.

There will be no access to and from the A66 at the Hargill/Melsonby junction between the hours above – diversion routes will be signposted.

Phase 2 – 18 July 2015 to 20 July 2015

Night time closures only between 20:00 – 06:00.

There will be no access to and from the A66 at Hargill/Melsonby Junction, Fawcett Lane Junction & Warrener Lane Junction between the hours above – diversion routes will be signposted.

Phase 3 – 21 July 2015 to 31 July 2015

This phase will involve 24/7 closures with no access to and from the A66 at Hargill/Melsonby Junction, Fawcett Lane Junction & Warrener Lane Junction – diversions will be signposted.

We have liaised with residents and businesses whose access lies directly off the A66 or close to the affected junctions to inform them of the works. We have collected email addresses in order to pass on updates, should any changes to the programme occur due to inclement weather etc.

If you would like to be added to the updates list, or know of a person, business or organisation not included in this note that would benefit from being added, please let me know.

If you have any queries feel free to contact me.

Regards, Vicki
