Road closures in Mytholmroyd

A section of New Road in Mytholmroyd will be closed for five days as essential road improvements are carried out on the carriageway.

The roadworks will be in place from May 19, from 6.00pm-11.00pm and are expected to be completed by May 23.

It is expected that the road will re-open in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.

The closures will take place between the junctions on Burnley Road and Scout Road.

Local residents and businesses have been informed of the closures and a diversion route will be in place via B6138 Cragg Vale, Blackstone Edge Road, Turvin Road and the A58 via Sowerby Bridge.

Motorists must also be reminded that the nearby Scout Road is closed while road repairs are being carried out to fix damage caused by subsidence.

Calderdale Council’s Head of Planning and Highways, Geoff Willerton, said: “The evening closures are needed to ensure that these essential works can be completed, which will reduce the need for future maintenance.

“We will do all that we can to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses in the area while the maintenance is carried out. We thank people in advance for their patience.”

The road improvements are being carried out by leading UK public and regulated services provide r Amey, on behalf of the Calderdale Council.
