Drivers are being warned about upcoming roadworks in Harrogate. 

Yorkshire Water will be working in Hookstone Road near to the junction with Leeds Road from Monday 20 February.

They're repairing a section of sewer which is located underground Hookstone Road. 

The team will start work at 8am on 20 February and will be onsite for a maximum of seven days from 8am and 6pm. Yorkshire Water says the repair should be complete by 4pm on Saturday 26 February.

During this week the right hand lane of Hookstone Road (the lane heading towards Leeds Road) will be closed. 

A Yorkshire Water spokesperson said: "We apologise for any traffic delays and advises motorists to consider a different route or allow extra time if they do need to travel to the area.

"It's unlikely that Amey or Yorkshire Water employees will need access to properties and residents and business owners are being asked to be on their guard against bogus callers while the team is working in the area.

"Employees of both companies carry identity cards which can be checked by telephoning 0800 1 38 78 78 and they won't mind waiting while their details are verified."
