Welton Road, Brough

Before Christmas, we were doing some work on Welton Road to replace the water pipe that supplies the local area. We were doing this to help support the new homes and businesses that are being built so everyone can continue to receive the same level of service from us.

We paused this work before Christmas to enable us to plan in this final stage of the pipe replacement more carefully after we received feedback from residents about the disruption our work had caused. We’ve carefully reviewed the feedback we’ve received and worked closely with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to create a plan to help manage traffic flows in the area in the hopes this will reduce congestion.

From Saturday 16th February, we’ll be making Welton Road into a one-way system for two weeks while we replace the final section of pipe. There will be no access for traffic heading towards the A63 on Welton Road. To access the A63 from Brough, you will need to follow the signed diversion; Cave Road > Stockbridge Road, Welton Low Road. The one way system only applies to Welton Road and not the diversion route. Traffic from the A63 heading into Brough can still use Welton Road. There will be a set of four-way temporary traffic lights in place on the cross roads of Skillings Lane and Welton Road to help keep traffic flowing along the diversion route. Parking will be suspended close to the cross roads and residents will be notified if this affects them.

The junction of Water Lane and Welton Road will not be affected by the work as the permanent traffic lights will be as normal. We’ll be working seven days a week to get the work completed quickly.
