Around £2.5m is being invested in more than 60 miles of roads and footpaths across the district as part of the Council’s highway work programme.
Resurfacing work will be taking place on Girnhill Lane in Featherstone from South of the junction with Priory road to outside number 21, from December 18 until 21, weather permitting. Diversion signs will be in place.
Cllr Denise Jeffery, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, said roadworks are taking place across the district as part of the ongoing maintenance programme.
“We apologise to drivers and other road users for any inconvenience caused but these works are necessary to maintain and improve our roads,” said Cllr Jeffery.
However, not all roadworks in the district are part of Wakefield Council’s road improvement projects.
