Response from Yorkshire Water

Letter to Highways Department East Riding of Yorkshire Council on the state o Main Street from Campey Lane to the Playing Field - 20 December 2018 

Traffic survey update - December 2018

Following the traffic surveys carried out by ERYC, ERYC has now proposed to investigate the possibility of introducing a 7.5 tonne weight restriction in the village. The first stage will include a period of consultation with various affected stakeholders and interested parties, including the Parish Council,  Ward Members, the Police, the Road Haulage Association and the Freight Transport Association. The plans are have the consultation letters and emails sent out before Christmas. 

After consulting, a report will be produced containing consultation feedback which seeks authority to proceed and publicly advertise the proposal.
If approved, the proposal would then be publicly advertised during the current financial year -ERYC informs us the three week advertisement period will be during January or February 2019, certainly no later than early March.

If there are no unresolvable objections following the advertisement of the proposals, ERYC's plan is to introduce the new restrictions in the new financial year 2019 - 2020. 

Hagg Bridge

Interim traffic controls have been put in place by ERYC whilst a more permanent solution is found. There is a possibility that the traffic lights may become a permanent feature but plans remain unknown at present.
