North Yorkshire County Council is investing almost £1M in repairing two roads affected by mining subsidence in Hensall, North Yorkshire.
Work has started the A645 and Station Road the town and will take around four weeks.
North Yorkshire County Council executive member for highways Don Mackenzie said: “This stretch of road has been adversely affected as a result of mining subsidence for some time.
“We have carried out temporary repairs in the past, but this investment allows us to make the deep repair and resurfacing that local people want to see.
“We appreciate this work may cause inconvenience, but it is essential to ensure the area continues to have the infrastructure it deserves.”
The project will also include footway works near a school.
