A major road improvement scheme is to begin next month on the A1033 Hedon to Withernsea road near the village of Winestead.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to carry out resurfacing work costing £390,000 along the A1033 at Winestead Lane, between Ottringham and Patrington, starting on Thursday 1 October.

The work is expected to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting, and motorists are being advised that temporary traffic lights will be in place.

For the safety of the workforce, the stretch of Winestead Lane into the village of Winestead will need to be closed temporarily during the working hours, between the A1033 junction and Nicholson’s Lane.

A signed diversion will be put in place via Halsham and Ottringham for around four weeks.

As part of the resurfacing scheme, new safety barriers and markings will also be introduced on Winestead Lane.

The council’s own highways maintenance team will carry out the work.

Councillor Gary McMaster, the council’s portfolio holder for enhancing communities, said: “We would like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience while we carry out this essential resurfacing work.

“They will see a much improved road when the scheme is completed.”
