Burnley Road overnight working and road closures

The A646 Burnley Road will be closed to vehicles overnight in both directions from 11:30pm - 5am on the following nights:
• Monday 20 April – Friday 24 April (re-opening 5am Saturday 25 April)
• Monday 27 April – Friday 1 May (re-opening 5am Saturday 2 May) Depending on progress, we may not need to work on all nights during this week.

The road will be closed between Caldene Bridge and Mytholmroyd Fire Station. Overnight working may be necessary on other dates if we experience delays. We will keep you updated if this is the case.

A diversion will be in place for affected road users and access for emergency vehicles will be maintained. Emergency fire services will continue to be provided throughout the construction works. Access for pedestrians will be maintained.
Vehicles will not be able to enter or leave Longfellow Court, West End Terrace or Caldene Avenue. Residents who need to leave before the works finish each night may need to consider leaving their vehicle elsewhere the previous evening before the works begin. Pedestrian access to these streets will be maintained.

This work is necessary to carry out surfacing on Burnley Road and other essential work ahead of the opening of the new bridge.

We recognise the disruption which may be caused to residents in these areas, and will attempt to reduce the time required to carry out these essential works as far as possible. We will also do everything we can to minimise noise levels. However, as some of the work will involve the use of heavy equipment, it is unavoidable that there will be significant noise at times.

If you are concerned about the disruption the night works may cause you, please get in touch in advance so we can discuss this with you. You can contact VBA’s Customer Engagement Manager, Alison Carlton by email: alison.carlton@volkerstevin.co.uk or telephone: 07392 102093, or contact the project email account: mytholmroydFAS@environment-agency.gov.uk
