RESURFACING will start in Mill Street, Norton, on Monday, to prepare it for heavier traffic in coming weeks.

The road will be part of the diversion route for the forthcoming roadworks on the A64 over three weekends, and North Yorkshire County Council will carry out work between 9.30am and 3.30pm on Monday and Tuesday.

Mill Street will be closed to traffic but open to pedestrians.

Councillor Don Mackenzie, executive member for highways, said: "We are also having to suspend on-street parking while the work takes place. Should residents or businesses have any specific access requirements, they should get in touch and we will do what we can to accommodate their needs.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank residents and local road users for their patience while this essential work take place."
