This is the 41st 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 two weeks we have working on the new footpaths that run along the east side of the A19. We have been installing new drainage and preparing for kerbs.
We have been preparing for the piling rig which arrived on site today (Monday) to install the piles for the culvert protection structure.
The brickwork parapets continue. We have installed an outfall into Germany Beck.
Persimmon Homes have been setting up their compound within the development area and improving Germany Lane.
During the next 2 weeks we will be -
• Continuing the brickwork walls to the top of the sheet piled retaining structure
• Constructing footpaths to the east of the A19
• Installing piles to support the culvert protection structure on the A19 - completion before Christmas
• Installing ducts across the A19 for the future traffic signals and power cable diversions.
• Commencing work to the culvert protection structure
The closure of the eastern footpath on the A19 remains in place.
A historical culvert is located under the A19. We need to protect the culvert from any possible damage caused by the realigned carriageway and are therefore installing a concrete slab across the top of the culvert. The concrete slab will be supported on 6 concrete piles which will be installed by a piling rig.
The piling rig will look pretty similar to previously used piling rigs but unlike the previously used impact hammer to install the sheet piles, this type of pile is an augered pile. In other words an auger(or giant screw) is screwed into the ground, creating a deep hole which will be filled with concrete. No disturbance will be felt by our adjacent residents.
Once the piles are installed, and the concrete set, we will continue work to construct the concrete slab across the top of the culvert and undertake work to the footpaths north and south of the culvert. For this work adjacent to the carriageway we need to work under traffic lights to provide a safe working zone.
We will be shutting the site down for Christmas on Friday 22nd December. We will return on Tuesday 2nd January.
The site will be visited daily to check the site is secure and to maintain the temporary lighting on Fulford Road.
Please report anything untoward to this email address Germany.firstname.lastname@example.org which will be monitored over the Christmas break.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
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.
