40mph Limit for Winter Pothole Filling on Selby Bypass


4:58pm 15th October 2014

A 40mph speed limit will be put on the Selby bypass this winter to allow the worst of the potholes on the road to be filled in.

The county council says it will be carrying out an investigation and fixing the worst of the potholes to make the road safe.

But as Minster FM revealed earlier this week, the long awaited full resurfacing of the bypass is not planned to begin until March next year.

The county council says any permanent fix to the bypass will be very expensive and it is still negotiating with the Highways Agency over who will foot the bill.The council says if it carries out the resurfacing now, it will undermine it's case for getting the Highways Agency to pay the resurfacing costs.

“We are aware that there has been significant public concern about the state of the Selby bypass and the nature and extent of the roadworks carried out so far and we share their frustrations,” said County Councillor Gareth Dadd, executive member for highways.

He continued “Investigations reveal that there are fundamental problems with the road structure and we are progressing in our discussions with the Highways Agency, but no conclusion has yet been reached. We remain confident that through negotiations with the Highways Agency this major work may be achieved without cost to the council and ultimately the county taxpayer.”
