Highway works begin at Folly Hall Bridge, Huddersfield

Kirklees Council has started highways works on the A616 Folly Hall Bridge due to end on the 22 August.

The works are being delivered as part of the improvement schemes across the region to enable developments and support economic growth. The A616 Folly Hall Bridge will allow essential bridge maintenance to be carried out in advance of the junction improvement works at this location.

Kirklees Council have announced that in order to carry out this work safely, traffic restrictions have been put in place. The single lane closure of the northbound lanes of the A616 will still enable traffic to pass the works in the unaffected lanes.

Pedestrians will be diverted via the existing traffic light crossings due to the full footway closure of the A616 Folly Hall West footpath. These will both be in place throughout the works.

Significant disruption is not expected for road users; however, traffic management will be in place for 4-5 weeks whilst the works are ongoing.

As part of the wider programme of highway works, the changes to Folly Hall Bridge will create more space on the road to reduce queuing and delays caused by traffic turning onto Colne Road (B6434) and St Thomas’ Road (B6432).

The central reservation, and a small part of the footway, will be reduced to create more space for turning traffic. The council are also monitoring traffic movements in or out of Colne Road.

The map below details the extent of the works as well as diversion routes for the footway works.
