More than £2.6m will be spent on maintaining roads across West Yorkshire before Christmas as the Highways Agency continue improvement works across the county.

The scheme includes more than £1m worth of improvements on the M62 including £840,000 of resurfacing works.

Works will also be carried out on the M606 and M621 where there will be £350,000 and £160,000 worth of resurfacing work taking place.

Vanessa Gilbert, Highways Agency North East Regional Director, said: “This is really good news for road users across Yorkshire because it will ultimately mean more reliable journey times and improved safety. Record amounts are being invested in roads – that inevitably means more roadworks, but for every scheme we work on there will be an improvement for drivers.

“We are well aware of how frustrating drivers find roadworks – but I would like to reassure everyone that all our work is planned very carefully to cause as little disruption as possible. Some is inevitable – and we ask for drivers’ cooperation while the improvements are carried out.”
