Sutton Bank to close for maintenance work

Sutton Bank

1:01pm 29th August 2017

Sutton Bank is going to be closed for essential maintenance work for a week from Monday 11 September.

The project includes the annual inspection and maintenance of the rock face, which will ensure that the road remains structurally sound.

North Yorkshire County Council will also close Osgoodby Lane south of the A170 and consequently there will be no access on or off the A170 at this junction for Osgoodby Lane residents.

During the Sutton Bank closure, access to premises will be maintained whenever possible, but there may be times when it is restricted.

A diversion will be signposted along the caravan route through Ampleforth and Coxwold.

County Councillor Don Mackenzie, North Yorkshire's Executive Member for Highways, said: "Every effort will be made to ensure the work is completed as soon as possible and that any disruption is kept to a minimum.

"We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any disruption that these works may cause."

Councillor Gareth Dadd, who represents the Thirsk division, added: "Sutton Bank is a vital part of the county's highways network and ensuring it remains in good order is essential. It is not possible to do this work without closing the road.''
