A major programme of resurfacing is due to begin in Richmondshire later this month.

Work will take place on the A6136 Catterick Road in Catterick Garrison between Camp Centre roundabout and Vicarage Road roundabout on Sunday, May 9, under a full road closure from 8am to 6pm.

The A684 between Constable Burton and the railway bridge at Stoop House will then be resurfaced beginning on Wednesday, May 12, for four working days.

The road will be closed between the working hours of 8am and 6pm, but will be open as usual over the weekend.

Councillor Helen Grant, who represents the Central Richmondshire division, said: “I welcome the resurfacing of this well-used stretch of road in Catterick Garrison as it will bring it to a much higher standard.

“We are carrying out the work on a Sunday when the roads should be quieter, but we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Councillor Karin Sedgwick, who represents the Middle Dales division, said: “This essential resurfacing will bring a significant long-term benefit to all road users.

“We appreciate that the closure will cause disruption, but we ask the public for their patience. Resurfacing is weather dependant so we will provide updates if there are any changes to the schedule.”

Advance warning signs will be in place and there will be a signed diversion during the road closure period.

Operatives working on site will be observing all Government guidelines on safe social distancing.

  1. I take it from reading this that the so called resurfacing will in fact be a thin layer of wet ar covered n loose clippings like normal? So we can now all look forward to cars full of tar spots and stone chips! May. Suggest if you’re going to do a job, do it properly and give the roads a full strip and and redress. Our rode notwork is bad enough as it s to drive on, I’d also suggest liaising with the utility companies prior to commencing any works so we don’t have it all dug up again in a fortnight due to planned maintenance of said companies infrastructure.

  2. Wow waited until the roads are busy again, but more importantly how about doing a more important road in Richmond from Lidl’s roundabout to the Darlington road roundabout. It is getting ridiculously dangerous.

    • Well said, and the Trading Estate roads are horrendous, and have been for years.

    • What makes you think the road in Richmond is more important than the main road in and out of Catterick!!!

  3. I think it can safely be assumed it will be the usual tar and chippings because it’s cheap and cheerful.
