Motorists’ delays set to continue as A65 works are extended

Northern Gas Networks has this week extended the time it expects roadworks to be in place on the A65 between Ilkley and Burley-in-Wharfedale.

The works on Ilkley Road, close to Manor Park Bends, were due to be complete by Thursday this week, 13 October, but due to ‘engineering difficulties’ this has now been extended to Friday 4 November. Temporary traffic lights are currently in use which are causing lengthy delays at times.

A spokesperson for Northern Gas said: “The finish date was extended due to a few engineering difficulties. The mains in the road are deep, therefore this has been difficult to get to. Engineers are now working seven days a week to get the job completed.”
