Roadworks in Holmfirth – week commencing 21.3.22 and week commencing 28.3.22 (updated)

As you are probably aware the traffic in Holmfirth in the mornings and at pick up time is currently facing severe backlogs due to road works on Hollowgate, which is currently closed.  Please allow extra time for your journey.
Further to our email this morning we can confirm that Kirklees Highways have agreed to postpone the major resurfacing works planned for Rotcher next week.
They will, however, be doing some investigative work on the road on the 24/25 March which will mean that they will have to temporarily close Rotcher between 9.30am and 2.30pm on these two days.  However, they have assured us that the footpath will remain open during these times.  They have also promised that the road will not close until after 9.30am and will open by 2.30pm at the latest, on both days.
We have asked that any future planned works on Rotcher, Cartworth Road and the junction of Cemetery Road are done during the school holidays.
Many thanks to all the parents who contacted the Highways department today – people power at it’s finest!
