This is the 44th edition of the newsletter that keeps you up to date with the progress of the Germany Beck junction works on the A19 in Fulford.
The electric power cables diversion across the A19 has been completed this past week. We apologise for the additional traffic disruption caused by the use of 24hr temporary traffic signals on the A19.
The culvert protection slab is complete, along with the concrete capping beam that runs across the top.
As seen below the old culvert headwall can still be seen from the beck, protected by our new structure supported on piled foundations.
A large trench has been dug the length of the site ready for gas and water pipes to be laid next week to supply the Persimmon housing development.
A large pit over 3m deep has been opened up adjacent to the A19 for a new pumping station to manage the surface water run off from the road during periods of very heavy rain.
The brick parapet wall has commenced to the south of the beck adjacent to the A19.
In other news, our office compound has been relocated to the Persimmon residential site.
During the next 2 weeks we will be -
• Progressing the pumping station and drainage connections adjacent to the A19
• Completing the footpaths adjacent to the A19 in readiness to divert the public onto the eastern footpath in the coming weeks
• Contractors will be installing water and gas pipes within the prepared trenches, followed by the reinstatement of the trenches
• Continuing the brickwork walls to the top of the sheet piled retaining structure across the top of the beck
• Preparing the junction adjacent to the A19 for surfacing
• Undertaking a deep drainage connection in the location of our old compound
The closure of the eastern footpath on the A19 remains in place.
A further period of temporary traffic light control on the A19 will be in operation from Friday 16th February.
This is required in order to tie the new raised junction section into the existing A19, ultimately to progress towards moving the A19 traffic onto the raised section in order to complete the junction.
Safe and clear access will be maintained for pedestrians using the western footpath at all times.
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.
