Barlby Roundabout Newsletter 13

06 March 2017

Week 25 commencing Monday 6th March 2017

This is the last edition of the newsletter that has kept 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 completed the kerbs, drainage and ducting to the west of the A19, the kerbs to the central reservation and alterations to the York Road Junction.

On the night of Thursday 2nd March and Friday 3rd March (or tonight depending on when you are reading this newsletter), road closures were in place to enable us to install some ducts across carriageway that we were unable to safely install during the day.

During the final week commencing Monday 6th March we will be completing the surfacing and road markings during the night under full road closures. During the day we will be completing any outstanding work and dismantling the compound.

We do not expect to require the use of temporary traffic lights during the day this coming week.

We hope you feel you have been kept informed of the works through receiving these newsletters. Sorry for the inconvenience you have experienced these past few months.

Thank you for bearing with us.

WARNING –Night time closures of Barlby Roundabout Friday 3rd, Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th, Thursday 9th and Friday 10th March

Tonight Friday 3rd March and every night this coming week commencing Monday 6th March from 8pm to 6am the roads connected by the new Barlby Roundabout will be closed. This is required to complete the surfacing and road markings.

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.

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.
