A170 closure planned for rock face inspection

North Yorkshire County Council has said that the A170 between Helmsley and Thirsk will be closed for a week from 10 September to undertake an inspection of the rock face.

Sutton Bank is described as the most spectacular inland cliff anywhere in Britain, according to the North York Moors National Park, with a 140m vertical drop from top to bottom.

“Sutton Bank is a key strategic route and therefore an important part of the county’s highways network,” said North Yorkshire County Council Thirsk representative Gareth Dadd. “Making sure it stays in good condition is vital and we can’t do this work without putting a road closure in place.’’
