North Yorkshire County Council highways teams will undertake footpath repairs on Bagdale which will involve replacing stonework and railings between the mini-roundabout at the bottom of Chubb Hill, working towards the town centre and the junction with Spring Hill.

It will begin on Monday January 31, lasting one month, during which time the traffic on Bagdale will be controlled using three-way temporary traffic lights when working closer to Chubb Hill.

Once works progress beyond Broomfield Terrace, two-way lights will be used.

“Either of these works on their own would be disruptive, but we feel that making the most of the quieter months before the warmer weather comes around is the best option.

"That’s why we are carrying both of them out at the same time.

“We would like to apologise for the inconvenience it is bound to cause local residents and businesses but we will minimise disruption as much as possible.

"If there are any changes to the schedule we will update the public.”
