Sutton Bank on the A170 between Helmsley and Thirsk will close for eight days next month for essential maintenance work. The work will include the inspection and maintenance of the rock face to ensure the route remains structurally safe in the future. A full road closure will be in place from 8 am on Sunday, 13 September, until the evening of Sunday, 20 September, weather permitting. Access to homes on Sutton Bank will be maintained whenever possible. However, due to the nature of the works, there may be times when access will be restricted. A diversion route will be signposted along the caravan route through Ampleforth and Coxwold for the duration of the closure.
