Spittal Hardwick Lane Culvert Repairs

Date: 10/09/2014

We have commenced essential repairs to Spittal Hardwick Lane Culvert over Fryston Beck immediately south of the M62 - to the north of Pontefract.

The work will continue for 18 weeks during which it will be necessary to restrict traffic by use of temporary traffic signals and in addition fully close the road for a period of 3 weeks. Pedestrian access will be maintained along Spittal Hardwick Lane at all times. Restrictions are necessary to carry the work out safely.

The repairs are part of the authorities capital programme for strengthening and maintenance of highway structures.

Cllr David Dagger, Cabinet Member for Transport and Highways said: "This will strengthen and maintain our highways network to make sure a better experience for drivers in and out of the district. We want to make sure residents aware that delays will be inevitable and they should set off in plenty of time to reach their destination."
