This is the seventh edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the roundabout construction on the existing A19/A163 Market Weighton Road junction and also changes to the existing York Road junction.
Over the past couple of weeks we have been progressing with the YW water main diversion. We've been laying kerbs to the south of Market Weighton Road and have been carrying out drainage works and laying ducts for the new street lighting scheme; as seen below.
The next couple of weeks will see us continuing with much of the same in preparation for surfacing the new sections of carriageway early in the new year.
Temporary 3 way traffic lights will continue to be in operation Monday to Friday for the next few weeks. The lights are required to ensure the safety of our workers where they have to work immediately alongside the A19. We apologize for the delays that some of you will be experiencing.
The temporary traffic lights will be in operation daily between 9.30 am and 4pm. The A19 and Market Weighton Road will be returned to full lane running outside these times.
The A19 and Market Weighton Road will remain fully open during this period. Please allow extra time within your journey to allow for some disruption due to the temporary traffic lights during the hours noted above.
Please also be mindful of the temporary enforceable reduction in the speed limit of 60 mph to 40 mph 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 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.
