B6255 Widdale (Hawes to Ingleton Road) – EMERGENCY CLOSURE FOR ESSENTIAL DRAINAGE REPAIRS
This letter is to inform you that North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking essential highway maintenance on the B6255 near to the Widdale Foot/Snaizeholme junctions, approximately 3.5 miles south of Hawes.
The works are to replace a collapsed culvert under the road which is 1.8m to 2.4m deep. The road will be closed from 08:00am on Wednesday 02 August to the afternoon of Friday 04 August to enable a new drainage pipe to be installed. During the closure, a signed diversion will be in place via Sedbergh and Kirkby Lonsdale.
Please note that as this work is in a watercourse it is very weather dependant and heavy rainfall might delay or extend the closure period. In advance of any works, signs on site will be erected showing the actual dates of the works and timings of the road closures. As soon as the road can be re-opened, the remainder of the repair will be carried out under the control of temporary traffic lights.
We request your assistance in the following ways:-
Please contact the Customer Resolution Centre on 01609 780780 to identify any special access needs you may have during the work period;
Co-operate and comply with any instructions issued by the traffic management operatives and take extra care whilst within the works area;
