Rolling road closure planned for Beckwith Road as new water pipe is installed

Yorkshire Water has started its second phase of work in Beckwith Road between Otley Road and Pannal Ash roundabout to lay a new water pipe to improve water quality.

From week commencing Monday 4 June a rolling closure will be in place between Otley Road and Pannal Ash roundabout as work progresses along the road.

Whilst the work is being carried out, a signed diversion will be in place for approximately nine weeks.

Mark Allsop, communications advisor at Yorkshire Water, said: “A rolling road closure will cause less traffic disruption than a full road closure and will also enable us to complete the work faster and enable Highways to resurface Beckwith Road in the summer. We’ll still be working seven days a week to complete this scheme as soon as possible and our normal working hours will be 8am until 5pm.

“Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout this phase of work. Refuse collections won't be affected so we ask residents to continue putting your bins out as normal. We’d like to thanks resident and motorists for their patience whilst we carry out this vital work.”
