Today I met with Peter Jackson, Council Leader, together with Richard Marshall, Regional Director, Yorkshire & North East, and Hayden Green of Highways England, to discuss the proposed closure of the A1 from Warenford to Wandylaw on 2nd March for 17 days.
I am disappointed that, despite lengthy discussions today, Highways England remain committed to the full closure of the A1 at Wandylaw to Warenford in March. I have sought their concrete assurance that this closure will be done with the minimum of impact to the local communities, businesses, and residents, and that there will be reasonable access at all times for residents alongside the 4 mile stretch that is closed. Highways England have assured me that there will be 24 hour access to all emergency vehicles, and the work will be carried out continually over the 17 day period.
Critically, Highways England have apologised for their lack of prior consultation with local residents about the closure, and have promised to hold a public meeting with the local communities over the coming weeks. I have demanded that this meeting is held as soon as possible, following a door to door impact survey Highways England are carrying out next week of residents and businesses in the affected areas. The Council and Highways England are committed to working together to ensure there is clear and accurate signage both on the A1 and the local roads.
I will continue to press Highways England for regular updates, maintaining pressure on them to consider the vital needs of my constituents at each step of this consultation ... See more
