They must be telling huge porkies to the press then as it says they have made good progress and are on time with the original work,but more work is required at that is why the delay until March 7th....

the link to the North Yorkshire site clearly explains all this!
The initial work is a TEMPORARY solution - the pictures of work done is clearly there. I imagine, from what they say there, that the road will be opened around that time (although i am sure the rain over the weekend will have slowed things down again), and they will then have another go at a permanent or longer lasting fix. I'd rather take the detour for 2 years than have tonnes of earth descend on some poor soul!

THE trans-Pennine route between Skipton and Harrogate at Kex Gill - closed fearing a land slip - is to be reopened on Saturday.

North Yorkshire County Council says good progress on drainage and stabilisation works had been made since the A59 was closed on January 5.

Contractors have worked seven days a week to finish the work which has caused widespread disruption and put miles on the journey between Skipton and Harrogate.

It was expected the the road would be closed until March.

“We are delighted to be able to open the road this weekend,” said County Councillor Don Mackenzie, North Yorkshire’s executive member for highways.
