This is the 29th edition of the newsletter that keeps you up to date with the progress of the Germany Beck junction works on the A19 in Fulford.
During the past 2 weeks we have continued our works installing of the attenuation (water storage) drainage system within the carriageway embankment. The image below shows construction of one of the larger manholes which will hold a hydrobreak. The hydrobreak slows down the speed and reduces the volume of the water as it enters the beck. Due to the size and complexity of the manhole a lot of work goes into the base. The timber structure made by our joiners forms the inside face of the manhole and will be removed once the walls of the manhole have been filled with concrete and left to set.
Northern Gas diversion works have been continuing within the A19.
• Continuing the Northern Gas diversion works within the A19.
• Carrying out Yorkshire Water Main connections within the A19.
• Trimming back trees to the west of the A19 and into landings lane.
The closure of the eastern footpath on the A19 remains in place
For a further week from Monday 3rd July traffic lights will be in use on a daily basis on the A19 during the 'off peak' time of 9am to 3pm.
From Monday the 10th July, for a period of 2 weeks, 24hr traffic lights will be in operation on the A19 to make the final gas and water connections onto the existing mains. Large pits are required to be excavated and left open within the highway in order to install the equipment to make the connections. The connections will take several days.
Advance warning signs will be erected several days in advance of the works commencing.
I would advise you to seek alternative routes during this period although I appreciate that this will not be possible for local residents and businesses.
Provision for pedestrians and others using the footpaths will be maintained during these operations. Please follow the directions provided by the signs.
We apologise for any inconvenience for those delayed due to the traffic lights caused by these necessary works.
Please be assured that the different areas of works will be securely fenced at all times to ensure the safety of the public.
We will be receiving deliveries to site this week. Each delivery will be guided into site by one of our employees once traffic and pedestrians are clear from the site entrance. Please be patient if you are held up for a short time whilst these manoeuvres take place.
Pedestrians will be given right of way along the footpaths of Fordlands Road but please be aware of deliveries using the entrances to site off Fordlands Road on occasion.
