COUNCIL road bosses are set to spend £150,000 to resurface 200 yards of road and pavement in Huddersfield.

Bosses have asked permission to splash the cash on resurfacing Shorehead roundabout and sections of the three approach roads.

They also want to repair the footpath which runs along the outside of Sainsbury's car park next to the roundabout.

A report to Kirklees Council's Cabinet said the pavement needed resurfacing and the road was worn and rutted in places.

In particular they will be concentrating on the surface in Wakefield-bound lanes leading from Southgate on to Wakefield Road. The works are expected to take around a month.

They are due to start in August and be finished in September.

Traffic bosses have scheduled the work to take place in the evenings and on Sundays to avoid too many delays.

However, they admit motorists will be disrupted by the work.

They are planning on limiting the number of lanes closed to keep traffic flowing and using temporary traffic lights.

A note of caution is sounded in the report which says the limited widths of Queensgate mean that a closure will be needed so that works can be undertaken safely.

Bosses are considering diverting traffic the other way round the ring road, but this will be confirmed later.
