THE BROUGH RELIEF ROAD
Brough Relief Road connects the east side of Brough with the Brough South Development as well as joining the development to Skillings Lane in the town centre.
It has funded by the Brough South Consortium and Homes England, and work was being carried out by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Network Rail.
Phase two of the road was completed in January 2018, which extended Moor Road across the railway, connecting Brough South to the rest of the town. Phase three of the scheme, which saw the road extended to meet the southern end of Skillings Lane, was completed in March 2022
The worked was carried by local civil engineering specialist, C.R. Reynolds Ltd, and won second place in the £5m and over category of the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) Yorkshire and Humber awards 2018.
The project also won a Certificate of Excellence award at the same ceremony, recognising the quality of design and workmanship that has gone into the scheme.
The road will ease town-centre congestion by linking Skillings Lane with Moor Road, meaning traffic will no longer be confined to the current town centre route.
As well as delivering the Brough South Relief Road, the Brough Consortium is also funding and delivering improvements to the A63 Brough/Elloughton/Welton junction as part of the Brough South Development.
The work will see the current traffic light system replaced with a roundabout that will ease traffic flow at the junction and reduce queuing and back-ups onto the A63.
The project team is currently investigating ways of delivering this improvement ahead of schedule.
