A658 POOL BANK CULVERT WORKS – UPDATE ON OVERNIGHT ROAD CLOSURE

I have received the information below:

“I am writing to let you know that, as part of the above works, we will need to close the A658 Pool Bank New Road overnight on Monday 6th August. The road will be closed in both directions from 10:30pm until 4am on Tuesday 7th August at the latest, to allow us to safely switch around the traffic barriers so we can begin work on the opposite side of the road. This will, in effect, mark the completion of the first half of the structural works.

The closure is being carried out overnight to minimise disruption, with particular care taken to avoid bus services and those travelling to catch outbound flights at the airport. Signage and diversions will be in place whilst the work is carried out, directing traffic via Otley, although local traffic may well find their own alternative routes. 

As soon as the closure is over the road will return to the single lane with temporary traffic signal arrangement, with traffic travelling over the newly repair section of road. 

We will be both issuing a press release and visiting local residents this morning to let them know about the short disruption. Access to their properties will be maintained.”
