Kex Gill repairs to start next week

Initial repair works on the A59 at Kex Gill are due to start next week, focusing on reinforcing the existing retaining wall.

It is unclear at this point exactly how long these initial works will take, but estimates suggest the work could be completed in three weeks. The interim benefit of the work could be to facilitate the opening of the A59 to single-line traffic under traffic light control. The target will be to try to deliver that as quickly as possible.

North Yorkshire County Council’s highways team is discussing a more permanent solution with specialist geotechnical consultants following coring investigations that will be completed this week.

The road has been closed since 30 May following signs of movement.

As the initial phase of construction is carried out, work will move forward with the design of the whole solution so that the road can be opened to two-way traffic. Once the county council know exactly what the permanent repairs will entail and how long they will take, discussions will be held with local businesses and the community to consider the best time to make these repairs. The road is likely to need to close fully to carry out the permanent repairs.

The initial work that should facilitate the opening of the road to single-file traffic will have the additional benefit of providing access along the A59, albeit under traffic light control, before the Great Yorkshire Show, which begins on 10 July.
