Road works around Hebden Bridge

17th May 2023 News
As part of the wider A646 Corridor Improvement Programme, work started on Friday 12 May to improve safety on this busy road. Work is taking place between Stubbing Holme Road and the junction with Heptonstall Road. This involves the widening of footways and improvements to Heptonstall Junction.

To carry out this work safely, it is necessary for temporary traffic lights to be in place. Whilst some level of disruption is unavoidable, the Council is doing all it can to carry out the work as quickly as possible and minimise the impact on traffic in the area.

Work is taking place seven days a week,. The temporary traffic lights are manned between 7am and 7pm every day, allowing the lights to be altered to respond to traffic conditions at different times of the day.

The current work is expected to take around two to three weeks to complete. Further works are scheduled around Hebden Bridge in June. The Environment Agency will be digging trial holes to inform final designs for flood alleviation scheme. Further details around the requirement of these works will be confirmed as the current scheme progresses. It’s anticipated this may take around five weeks to complete. Throughout the works, everything will continue to be done to minimise disruption as much as possible.
