Improvements to begin on several Scarborough streets

Improvement works by North Yorkshire County Council to various streets in Scarborough town centre are scheduled to start on Monday, 22 January.

On Newborough, paving works and footpath widening will take place and the taxi ranks will be repositioned into St Thomas Street. This will enhance the appearance and improve facilities for pedestrians in the area. A temporary road closure will be in place during the works from Queen Street to St Nicholas Street and there will be a signed diversion.

Aberdeen Walk will see a continuation of the precinct works that took place last year with new paving and a coloured tarmac centre section. In Bar Street, the County Council will replace the block paving and in Huntriss Row sections of the block paving will be relaid.

The work is scheduled to be complete by 29 March. Signs will be erected in the area giving more details.

County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Highways, said: “These essential improvements are a continuation of the Scarborough Precinct work that took place last year and have been made possible by funding made available through the Government’s National Productivity Investment Fund.”

County Councillor Janet Jefferson, Member for Castle division and president of the chamber of trade and commerce, said: “It has been a long-term intention to create a much stronger pedestrian link between the town centre and the seafront and this is a step towards achieving that. We hope it will increase pedestrian flow to the lower part of the town.

“I hope residents and visitors will support the local businesses during the works and we would like to apologise in advance for any disruption these works might cause.”
