Barlby Roundabout Newsletter 12

17 February 2017

Weeks 23 & 24 commencing 20th February 2017

This is the 12th 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.

During the past 2 weeks we have finished the works to the east of the A19 and have commenced on the west side of the roundabout completing the kerb drain, drainage, ducting, installing posts to the new signs and erecting street lighting columns.

We have also commenced extending the central reservation and the kerbs down towards the York Road junction.

During the next 2 weeks we will complete the central reservation, the kerbs on the western side of the A19 and install the new traffic island at the junction with York Road. 4 Way temporary traffic lights will be in operation from 9.30am until 4pm this coming week and some of the following week to complete these works.

WARNING – Night time closure of Barlby Roundabout and Thursday 2nd March and Friday 3rd March.

On the nights of Thursday 2nd March and Friday 3rd March from 8pm to 6am the roads connected by the new Barlby Roundabout will be closed. This is required to install the remaining 2 drainage crossings safely.

This includes the A19 in both directions, Market Weighton Road and York Road at the junction with the A19.

The diversion signs will direct you to the advised alternative route.
Due to the restriction of heavy goods vehicles on local roads, HGVs will be diverted via the M62, M1 and A64. Other vehicles will be diverted via local roads.

Night time closures will continue the following week to complete the surfacing and road markings.

We would also again 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.
