Apologies for the very late notice. I only found out this morning the exact dates and times when A-one+ are planning their closures of the section of the TPT / NCN65(&66) which runs parallel with the A64 between the Sun sculpture and Sim Balk Lane Bridge. They need to close the path at certain times on certain days to undertake some ditch clearance works and clearing back some vegetation which is affecting the operation of the drainage ditch. Please note they are not proposing to do anything with the root-damaged path surface at this point but have agreed to look at this as a separate maintenance scheme since we managed to point out to them that the path is on their land. The work in the vicinity is programmed to start on 3rd April and finish on 27th April. The closures will mostly be taking place during the evenings starting at 2000hrs and reopening at 0800hrs but they have also indicated that they will need to undertake some daytime work therefore will need to close the path between 0930hrs and 1530hrs on the 16th to 20th April and 23rd to 27th April. Please note that on some of the dates they will only be working on the A64 itself adjacent to the path so it may be possible to keep the path open, there may also be times when it is possible to marshal path users through the works area without them having to divert. They will only be working Monday to Friday. I’ve tried to summarise the closures below to simplify the situation

23rd April 0930hrs to 1530hrs and 2000hrs to 0800hrs
24th April 0930hrs to 1530hrs and 2000hrs to 0800hrs
25th April 0930hrs to 1530hrs and 2000hrs to 0800hrs
26th April 0930hrs to 1530hrs and 2000hrs to 0800hrs
27th April 0930hrs to 1530hrs and 2000hrs to 0800hrs
*The works will be taking place on the adjacent A64 but may affect the path sometimes. If the path won’t be affected it will stay open. They have agreed to marshal path users through the works area when it is safe to do so i.e. when they are jetting out the culvert. I have attached the diversion route plan and their signing proposals. Can you please spread the word amongst the various cycling communities to save anyone being unduly inconvenienced by the works. I’m afraid we didn’t have any say over the timing of the works which coincide with the Easter holiday period.
