THE Highways Agency will be carrying out resurfacing work on the A160 between Eastfield Road and Manby Roundabout in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire next week.

Work will take place overnight on the east and westbound carriageways and on Manby Road Roundabout from September 24 to October 4, between 8pm and 6am.

Overnight carriageway closures will be required to carry out the work and clearly signed diversion routes will be in place

During the morning of Saturday 29 September, lane one will be closed on the westbound carriageway prior to Eastfield Road in order to allow the deep newly laid road surface to cool, and for safety reasons a 50mph speed restriction will be in place. No further restrictions will be necessary on the eastbound carriageway.

Highways Agency project manager, Steven Wright, said: “The work will provide a smoother and quieter road surface for drivers. During the work we advise road users to plan their journeys to avoid delays. Safety is our top priority and for the safety of road users and road workers we encourage all drivers to drive carefully past the works and along the diversion routes, keeping within the speed limit, and concentrating on the road ahead.”
