Delays as Mytholmroyd Flood Scheme completes final phase

Saturday, 19 September 2020

On Monday 21 September, work will begin on Burnley Road in Mytholmroyd to carry out repairs to the surface water drainage system. The work is expected to take 1-2 weeks. One lane of traffic will be closed along the length of the working area, with manned traffic lights in place.

The work will take place in four locations along Burnley Road. The working areas are indicated by red lines on the map of central Mytholmroyd below.

A temporary pedestrian crossing will be in place at the front of working area 1. This will be supplemented at school opening and closing times by a crossing patrol person supplied by VBA who will assist pedestrians at the crossing. This will also help manage traffic flows during these times by reducing the impact of the pedestrian lights on holding up traffic.

Working areas 1 & 2 will be within the same section of traffic management. Access to Sainsbury's will remain open. After working areas 1 & 2 are complete, the temporary pedestrian crossing will stay in the same location but will no longer be manned by a crossing patrol person. The traffic lights for the lane closure will then be moved to working areas 3 & 4. The work will be completed in area 3 before we move to area 4.

It is currently expected that the Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme to be completed towards the end of 2020. However, this is still dependant upon favourable weather conditions and that no other unexpected circumstances arise.
