TRAVEL: major Bridlington road to be closed for several weeks

A major road in Bridlington will be closed from today for several weeks.

Hilderthorpe Road is to be widened to a three lane carriageway, with one lane in each direction and a right-turn lane, to allow easier and quicker traffic flow.

The works are the second phase of the Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan, which aims to improve vehicle and pedestrian access around the town.

To reduce the potential for congestion, the council is encouraging visitors to Bridlington to use the Park & Ride facility to the south of the town and Limekiln Lane Car Park to the north of the town as well as the land train services.
