Works to deliver this complex junction of the A19 are progressing well. The new junction is required to facilitate Persimmon's 650 unit residential development in the fields to the east, locally known as Germany Beck.
Many months of planning preceeded the start in June. The A19 is one of the main routes into York and is locally very sensitive with respect to several environmental issues.
The new junction will operate under traffic signal control, providing access to the new housing site but also to the community living within Fulford South. The highway scheme will in addition, provide flood protection to the A19.
Due to the sensitivity of the site Howard Civil Engineering have been keeping all local interested residents and businesses informed of the progression of the junction works through a series of newsletters and a dedicated page on Howard Civil Engineering website.
The works started on site in June and will continue through until Summer 2017.
A 25,000m3 flood alleviation earthworks package has been completed over the summer to provide compensatory volume for the anticipated flood water displaced by the creation of the junction within a low lying area.
