Drivers are being warned to brace themselves for disruption as road works are set to be carried out in Gomersal.

Resurfacing work will start on Monday October 28 on Spen Lane at Gomersal, between the junction with Barrington Parade and the Post Office at Gomersal Hill Top.

Weather permitting it should take one week to complete.

A spokeswoman for Kirklees Council said: “Off peak working between 9.30am and 4pm will allow morning and evening rush hour traffic to pass but there will be traffic restrictions in place which will inevitably cause some delay and disruption and road users are asked to find alternative routes if possible.”

Temporary traffic signals will be in use and the following roads will be closed during the working hours of 9.30am-4pm:

* Spen Lane – closed between the junction with Barrington Parade and the Post Office at Gomersal Hill Top. The diversion will operate in either direction and is the unaffected length of Spen Lane, Spen Bank, St Peg Lane, Dewsbury Road, Bradford Road, Hunsworth Lane, Whitehall Road West, Bradford Road( Birkenshaw) Oxford Road (Gomersal) and the unaffected length of Spen Lane to the Post Office.

* Shirley Road – closed at its junction with Spen Lane. The diversion is the unaffected length of Shirley Road, Butts Hill, Barrington Parade, Nibshaw Road and vice-versa.

* Barrington Parade – closed at its junction with Spen Lane. The diversion is the unaffected length of Barrington Parade, Nibshaw Road, Spen Lane and vice-versa.

Residents will be kept informed of developments and temporary traffic signs will appear at the points of the closures in advance to warn and inform road users.

The council will work with any nearby premises and, where possible, provide assistance or measures to minimise disruption and disturbance whilst the work is taking place.
