Work on reconstructing Red Brae Bank, Bewerley, begins 17th October


Residents will be aware that there have been traffic lights on Red Brae Bank, between Greenhow and Pateley Bridge, since February 2020 when severe storms caused the land below the road to subside.

North Yorks Highways have just announced the the repair work will start 17th October and last for approximately 9 weeks, ending on 16th December. The scheme requires the road to be closed for that period. A diversion will be in place via Pateley Bridge; the B6451 Dacre; Menwith Hill Road; Duck Street and Greenhow Hill village. Temporary traffic lights will be in place during the remainder of the work.

The £480,000 scheme will involve stabilising the top of the slope next to the road, reconstructing the carriageway, repairing the highway drainage and stabilising, drainage and landscaping work on the slope below the carriageway.

Cllr Andrew Murday, county councillor for Pateley Bridge and Nidderdale, said: “We have been waiting for these repairs to be done for a long time. The closure will be very inconvenient for people, but the work needs to be done and when it is complete people will feel the benefit.”
