Drivers alerted to major work in Harrogate

  • Developers of a new housing estate just outside of Harrogate will be carrying out road works next month (February).
  • It's for the King Edwin Park residential development.
  • Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, 3 February and will affect traffic on Penny Pot Lane.

Road users are being alerted to the start of major road works by a housing developer on Penny Pot Lane, Harrogate.

The scheme is part of Persimmon Homes’ King Edwin Park residential development between the Jubilee roundabout and the Ethelburga’s estate.

Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, 3 February, and will take place in several overlapping phases with completion expected in June.

The works will include completing the new entrance to the King Edwin Park development and providing a drainage connection.

For safety, the work will be carried out under temporary traffic signals and will include some closures of the road.

Lucie Jones, Community Liaison Officer for Howard Civil Engineering, which will carry out the work on behalf of Persimmon Homes, said:

“We have planned these works to keep the period of disruption to a minimum, but unfortunately there is likely to be some disruption for those living near or using Penny Pot Lane, although access to properties will be maintained at all times.”

North Yorkshire County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Access and Member for Harrogate Saltergate, said:

“This work is an essential part of the residential development. I am mindful that local residents and other users of Penny Pot Lane have been affected by road closures and temporary traffic management in recent times, and so the contractor will make every effort to minimise inconvenience and to keep everyone updated on progress.”

Members of the public can sign up to receive a fortnightly email newsletter about the work from Howard Civil Engineering. This will provide details of any changes to traffic management.
