Barlby Roundabout Interim Traffic Management Newsletter 15th February 2017

15 February 2017

WARNING Traffic disruption expected from Thursday 16th February 2017

This is an interim edition of your regular newsletter to provide you with information regarding the temporary traffic layout around the partially completed roundabout.

As from Thursday 16th February temporary traffic lights will be in operation during the day from 9.30 until 4pm to enable our workforce to safely complete the remaining kerbs and tie in works at Barlby Roundabout.

You may have experienced the traffic disruption when the temporary '3 way lights' were previously in operation.

This time '4 way lights' will be in use. We expect the disruption to be considerable and would advise you to seek alternative routes around the area if possible. Please factor in some extra time for your journeys, especially those collecting children from schools at the end of the day.

We will endeavor to keep this period of disruption as short as possible but expect the 4 way lights to be used for about 7 days during off peak times on week days.

Please be mindful about the new temporary road layout. The signs and cones will direct you into the correct running lane.

During other times, the traffic flow will be returned to normal roundabout running.

The A19 and Market Weighton Road and York Road will remain fully open during this period. 


We would like to advise vehicles to slow down when approaching the ramps onto and off the new areas of surfacing as directed by the signs.

Please also be mindful of the temporary enforceable reduction in the speed limit of 60 mph to 40 mph to protect our workforce.

Safety for children and the wider public 

Whilst there are no public footpaths adjacent to the works we acknowledge that construction sites can be attractive places for children.

Please be assured that all hazardous areas of works will be securely fenced at all times to ensure the safety of the public. Our compound will be entirely fenced off with gates allowing access to site personnel and deliveries of plant and materials only. 

Site personnel and deliveries will access our compound from the existing farmer's access off Market Weighton Road. Please be aware of deliveries using this entrance on occasion.
