A17 works near Fosdyke Bridge due to begin this month

More news, no ads


Highways bosses say a stretch of 'worn out carriageway' on the A17 will be repaired later this month - with overnight closures needed.

The start date for the project on and around Washway Road - near Fosdyke Bridge and Moulton Seas End is Monday, July 25.

The work is expected to take up to six weeks, with overnight closures from 6pm to 6am on weeknights for the following:

There will be a series of overnight closures on the A17.
There will be a series of overnight closures on the A17.
  • A17 Washway Road (between a point 160 metres north Middle Marsh Road junction and a point 260 metres south of the B1357 Common Road junction)
  • Middle Marsh Road (at A17 junction)
  • Red Cow Drove (at A17 junction)
  • B1357 Common Road (between A17 junction & a point 60 metres south)

Bosses have, however, stressed that Middle Marsh Road and Red Cow Drive will not be closed at the same time.

Coun Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “This section of the A17 near Moulton is nearing the end of its serviceable life, so we’ve taken the decision to rebuild the worst areas.

"This will involve removing the current carriageway and replacing it with 6,000 tonnes of tarmac and stone.

“This six-week scheme will no doubt cause some disruption, but we’ll be working to minimise the impact by only carrying the works out overnight and maintaining access for residents and the emergency services throughout the project.”

The project comes as work for Cross Keys Bridge finally comes to an end today - after months of disruption for motorists travelling on the A17 at Sutton Bridge.

The official diversion route for the late-July work will be via the A151 and A16.
