£150 million Annual Economic Benefit
Boosting economic activity
The A629 Salterhebble to Shaw Hill transport scheme entered one of its last major stages, as overnight road resurfacing work started at the end of August.
The existing road surface will be replaced in phases along the route, marking a significant milestone in Calderdale Council’s project to help drive economic growth through improved journey times and reduced congestion.
We’ve carried out extensive planning to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and the travelling public whilst these essential resurfacing works take place.
The phased works will be carried out overnight, between 7pm and 6am, and any works involving pneumatic breaking equipment will be completed by 11.30pm to minimise any disturbance during the night. All road closures, diversion routes and traffic management will be clearly marked, and signs notifying people of closures will be in place two weeks before the closure.
Resurfacing is scheduled as follows:
During both of the above phases, Huddersfield Road residents are advised to park on neighbouring roads or at the temporary parking available at Spring Hall sports facility (from 28 August to 1 September there will be no access to Spring Hall after 7pm and before 6am but cars can be left overnight).
The diversion route during all works (apart from Salterhebble Hill) will be from Shaw Hill via Skircoat Road and Dudwell Lane.
Resurfacing works are highly weather-dependent and the timescales may have to change if the weather stops the works taking place as planned.
From September through to early 2019, work will include completing the Dryclough Lane junction remodelling and reopening the road; planting the ‘vertical garden’ on the hillside retaining wall at Salterhebble; and widening the road at the bottom of Salterhebble Hill.
