The turning from the A171 onto the B1416 will be widened and a right turn filter lane created. This will enable vehicles from the Whitby direction to wait to turn without disrupting the flow of traffic.


Works will commence on 30 January 2017 and be completed by Easter 2017.

Working hours

Monday to Friday, 7.00 am - 7.00 pm, mainly during daylight hours, avoiding weekends if possible. There will be night time working for resurfacing towards the end of the works for a maximum of two nights.

Traffic management

Temporary traffic lights will be required.There will be a 40 mph speed restriction on the B1416 for the duration of construction, from the A171 turning to just beyond the northern boudary of the mine site.
