Penny Pot Lane

Welcome to the Penny Pot Lane roadworks newsletter

04 February 2019

Welcome to the Penny Pot Lane roadworks newsletter. Here you can find out information about the roadworks that are planned on Penny Pot Lane for the Persimmon Homes residential development that may affect your journeys over the next few months.

You will be aware of the King Edwin Park residential development which is currently underway off Penny Pot Lane between the Jubilee Roundabout and the Ethelburga’s Estate.

As part of new entrance into the development a new filter lane is to be provided off Penny Pot Lane along with new street lighting.

The development requires all the usual services to be installed e.g. water, gas, electricity, communications and some of these require existing services along Penny Pot Lane to be upgraded.

As part of the works a drainage connection from the site will be installed down Penny Pot Lane in an easterly direction, past the Ethelburga’s Estate.

Howard Civil Engineering Ltd will be carrying out this work on behalf of Persimmon Homes.

This site will keep you up to date with the construction work and how it might affect you.

The first stage of the works, the filter lane and new services installation, are due to commence Monday 11th February for a period of 15 weeks. To carry out the works safely the road speed limit will be reduced to 30 mph and temporary traffic signals will be used to close off one lane of Penny Pot Lane.

Unfortunately, this is likely to cause some disruption for those using Penny Pot Lane.

These works will run from Monday 11th February until 25th May 2019 with a break for the Easter Break, Harrogate Flower Show and the Tour de Yorkshire when we are required to clear the road of all traffic management.

Our aim, through our communication programme, is to keep you and other interested parties informed of the various roadworks phases, throughout the project.

We would like to encourage you to sign up below to Howard Civil Engineering’s Penny Pot Lane electronic newsletter. The newsletters will be published every fortnight, straight into your inbox, and will provide you with information about the on-going works and highlight periods of potential traffic disruption to enable you to plan your daily journeys. The newsletters will also appear here, on this site.

Individual concerns regarding the road works can be forwarded to Howard Civil Engineering’s Community Liaison Officer, Lucie Jones, using the email address

We hope that by keeping you informed we can reduce any concerns you may have about the works over the next coming months.
