After several weeks of planning Howard Civil Engineering Ltd are ready to commence works for Barratt Homes to construct the new roundabout on the existing A19/A163 Market Weighton Road junction and make some changes to the existing York Road junction.
The works will commence in earnest on the 19th September but we will be carrying out some advance hedge removal works this coming week commencing 12th September.
Please be advised that any hedges that are removed in order to construct the roundabout will be replaced by new hedge planting around the boundary of the new roundabout.
The works are expected to take approximately 23 weeks, with completion early March 2017.
The aim of this regular newsletter is to keep you up to date with progress; advising you of specific periods of roadworks that might affect your usual journeys.
Once we have removed the hedge and trees we will be establishing our office and material storage compound along with a car parking area for our employees.
The first few weeks of work will concentrate on constructing the areas of the new roundabout that do not impinge on the current junction and therefore should have little affect on traffic.
You will notice, however, road works signs and cones to protect our workforce and advise you of a temporary enforceable reduction in the speed limit of 60 mph to 40 mph, again to protect our workforce.
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 once underway, the different areas of works will be securely fenced at all times to ensure the safety of the public. Deep excavations within our works, for drainage for example, will have further fencing erected around them. 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.
