A63 repair and improvement work – an update
We contacted you recently to let you know that A-one+, working on behalf of Highways England, will be carrying out essential maintenance work on the A63. We are writing to you again to let you know the latest about this work, as it will now start later in June.
Work is due to take place between Jct. 38 of the M62 North Cave, and the A63 South Cave. A vehicle diversion will be in place from Howden to Western Interchange.
What are we doing and why?
We will be removing and replacing sections of the central reservation barriers to maintain safety for customers.
At the same time, we will also:
• renew some signs and streetlights
• improve some sections of verge
• resurface some sections of the road
• replace road markings and reflective studs
What’s happening and when?
In our previous letter we said that work was due to start on Tuesday 1 June and that we expected to complete the work by the end of January 2022. This date has now changed. We plan to start work on Monday 28th June and expect to complete by the end of February 2022.
We will start work at one end of the road and will move along. This means that not all sections of the route will be affected at the same time.
We are working with local councils and other organisations to keep disruption to a minimum, but some of the equipment we need to use will be noisy for businesses and customers living closest to the A63.
We will be working overnight from 8pm to 6am Monday to Friday. No weekend work is planned.
At night, we’ll try to finish the noisiest parts before 11pm to minimise noise as much as we can. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
Closures, restrictions and diversions – updated
To safely complete this work, we will need to close one side of the A63 overnight where we are working. Other parts of the road, where we’re not working, will remain open.
The closures will be in-place:
• From Monday to Friday
• Between 8pm and 6am
• On one side of the A63 at a time, including side roads and slip roads
During closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the local authority and police.
A 40mph speed limit will be enforced to ensure the safety of customers while traveling through the roadworks. Laybys will be closed.
For those on foot, public rights of way crossing points on the A63 will be closed overnight Monday to Friday or when work takes place. A pedestrian diversion towards Annies Med Lane will be in place at the crossings closest to South Cave.
We’ve selected diversions which will cause the least impact to local communities. Due to the rural nature of the location, we’re working in, however, journey times could increase by up to 30 minutes. We recommend that you allow additional time if you’re planning to use the A63 during this time.
