North Yorkshire transport link to close for maintenance work

Essential annual maintenance is to be carried out next month at Sutton Bank, one of North Yorkshire’s most important transport links.

The bank carries the A170 up an extreme gradient. The work this year includes the annual inspection and maintenance of the rock face.

To allow this maintenance to be done, Sutton Bank will close on Monday 5th September. The closure is expected to last one week, depending on the weather.

While the bank is closed, we’ll maintain access to premises on the bank whenever possible. However, the nature of the work means access may be restricted at times. Where drivers are permitted through the closure, we would ask them to take extra care while within the works.

Traffic will be diverted along the caravan route through Coxwold and Ampleforth. We ask drivers to drive considerately, especially through the villages, having regard for residents and obeying speed limits.

Services to be cut and jobs lost as Hull Council try to save £2.2m

Services will be cut back, and some jobs will be lost - after Hull City Council announced it will go ahead with plans to save more than two million pounds.

The latest cuts come on top of £8m worth of savings announced last month - because of a reduction in the money the council gets from the government.

The authority has to save £30m by 2020. Among the plans, there will be a review of children's and adult services, there will be less money for some bus routes, and household waste centres will close two days a week.

Councillor Daren Hale from Hull City Council said it is a problem for authorities across the country.
