Burnley Road overnight working and road closures - Keeping You Informed

The A646 Burnley Road will be closed to vehicles overnight in both directions from 11:30pm - 5am on Wednesday 13 – Friday 15 May 2020 (re-opening 5:00am on Saturday 16 May).

The road will be closed between Mytholmroyd Fire Station and White Houses. Overnight working may be necessary on further 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.
The area in front of White Houses will not be within the closure, but vehicles may be required to wait if plant is temporarily blocking access. Vehicles will not be able access Westfield Terrace. Residents who need to leave before the works finish each night may need to consider leaving their vehicle elsewhere the previous evening before works begin.

This work is necessary to carry out surfacing on Burnley Road and other essential work. The work needs to be completed overnight due to the size of equipment required and the need to maintain a safe working area for our staff.

We recognise the disruption which may be caused to residents in this area and will attempt to reduce the time required to carry out these works as far as possible. We will 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.
