As part of its programme of highway maintenance works, East Riding of Yorkshire Council is carrying out essential carriageway improvement works on the A1038 Kingsgate between Wilsthorpe Roundabout and Kingston Road, Bridlington.
The works began on Monday, 7 January 2019 and are expected to be completed in six weeks (weather permitting).

The next phase of this work is based on assessing the highway drainage. This work will start on the evening of Monday, 23 July at Castle Hill Roundabout, Cottingham, working along the A164 northwards to Lincoln Way Roundabout, Beverley.
