This is the 30th 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 last couple of weeks major traffic disruption has been experienced on the A19 due to the use of 24hr traffic lights whilst we carry out necessary service diversions.
Unfortunately this is set to continue over the next few weeks.
The low pressure gas main diversion has been completed. The water main diversion continues this week.
We have pruned some trees adjacent to the A19 and on Landings Lane in preparation for the sheet piling that will take place towards the end of the summer.
On site we have commenced the brickwork to the sheet piled retaining walls, completed the hydrobreak manhole within the carriageway embankment and levelled and compacted stone at the spine road entrance.
During the next 2 weeks we will be -
• Continuing the Yorkshire Water Main diversion works within the A19.
• Preparing a stone platform in preparation for installing foundations adjacent to the old culvert on the A19
• Installing augered foundations through the A19 for a strengthened protection slab across the old culvert
• Constructing footpaths to the east of Fordlands Road
• Continuing brickwork walls to the sheet-piled retaining walls
• Continuing installation of the elliptical drainage pipes within the spine road embankment.
• Preparing a hardstanding area and footpaths on the Persimmon residential site in preparation for the Archaeology Open Day.
The closure of the eastern footpath on the A19 remains in place.
For a further week from Monday 17th July traffic lights will be in use for 24 hours on a daily basis on the A19 until Friday 21st July to complete service diversions.
From Monday 24th July off peak traffic lights will recommence and remain in place on week days for the next few weeks to facilitate the construction of the old culvert protection slab within the A19.
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.
