More road closures are on their way in many streets and roads in Harrogate.

More residential areas of Harrogate are about to get it by roadworks over the next five months - and the Harrogate Advertiser has the full list of where and when it will happen.

Up until recently, most of the minor chaos of road closures and temporary traffic lights has been caused by new housing developments - and the knock-on effects on the town's infrastructure in terms of water and power.

But now Harrogate is in a phase of road surface improvements to make Harrogate road-worthy for the arrival of the world's greatest cyclists coming here later in the year for the Tour de Yorkshire in early May and the UCI World Road Championships in September which will see the town hosting the biggest international event in its entire history for nine days.

Harrogate row over Universal Credit rollout

North Yorkshire County Council has been working hard since last year to bring the important Harrogate town centre circuit, in particular, up to scratch.
It has even set up an online map of the roadworks at www.northyorks.gov.uk/roadworks-map, which is updated on a weekly basis as work progresses.

These preparations by the county council will effect a lot of areas. What follows below is the council's own timetable for work from now until July, street by street, day by day.
