Calderdale Council has started essential maintenance on the A58 Hebble Viaduct in Halifax.
Work began today (Tuesday) to replace the steel parapets and carry out concrete repairs at the ends of Hebble Viaduct and the exit slip road that leads to Boothtown. The parapets and concrete are showing signs of deterioration and need upgrading to meet modern safety standards.
The works will be carried out in four phases, and are expected to be completed by the end of November 2013. The first phase involves works to the Boothtown exit slip road. It will be closed for six weeks to ensure the safety of the workforce. A short, signed diversion route is in place.
Further road and lane closures will be required throughout the works. Calderdale Council apologises in advance for any inconvenience that these essential works might cause.
