HIGHWAYS England has cancelled its work on the A64 this weekend due to the Storm Callum.

The Musley Bank eastbound exit slip road was due to be close from 8pm today (Friday) until 6am, on Monday, October 15

Highways England’s programme delivery manager, Mark Ramsden, said: “Our planned closure of the Musley Bank eastbound exit slip road off the A64 has had to be postponed due to Storm Callum. The high winds mean that it is not safe for our contractors to install the traffic management needed to close the slip road. The work will be reprogrammed and we will let people know once the new dates have been agreed.”

The closure of the A64 over three weekends is still planned to go ahead.

Highways England is to carry out resurfacing work on the A64 between York and Malton as part of a £1.4m scheme, including major reconstruction of the section between Crambeck and Low Hutton. Workers will dig up the road to depths of between 30cm and 80cm to replace the concrete base foundation, and the depth of the repair means it cannot be done through lane or overnight closures.

A64 three weekend closures will be from 8pm on Friday, October 19, until 6am on Monday, October 22; from 8pm on Friday, November 9 until 6am on Monday, November 12; and from 8pm, Friday, November 16, until 6am, Monday, November 19, with diversions in place.
