This is the 45th 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 pumping station adjacent to the A19 has been completed together with the installation of the large drainage pipe into the carriageway. The 3m deep pumping station will manage the surface water run off from the road during periods of very heavy rain.
The brickwork walls to the top of the sheet piled retaining structure have continued.
Contractors have installed the water and gas pipes within the prepared trenches the whole length of the spine road.
We have been preparing the junction adjacent to the A19 for surfacing early week commencing Monday 19th February.
We have commenced installing the traffic signal equipment chambers, ducts, feeder pillars.
We have commenced a deep drainage connection in the location of our old compound.
During the next 2 weeks we will be commencing the work to lift the A19 to the height of the new junction. This will take place in phases in order to maintain traffic flow on the A19. Periods of both off peak temporary traffic signals and 24hr temporary traffic signals will be in use over the next 5 weeks.
The phases which will take place over the next 5 weeks will be as follows
1. The section of the junction adjacent to the A19 will be tarmaced with temporary tarmac ramps tying the raised junction into the A19
2. South bound A19 traffic will be diverted up onto the junction and back down onto the A19
3. Work will take place to extend the raised junction across the old south bound carriageway
4. North bound A19 traffic will also be diverted up onto the junction and back down onto the A19
5. Pedestrians will be diverted onto the new eastern footpath
6. Work will take place to extend the raised junction across the north bound carriageway
Fordlands Road traffic will continue to use the Fordlands Rd/A19 junction as normal. A19 traffic will not be diverted onto Fordlands Road.
During this period of raising the A19, temporary steepened ramps and bends in the road will be experienced. This is due to the constraints of the very small site area. The ramps and bends have been designed to suit all traffic. The ramps and bends in the road are temporary and will not represent the completed junction layout.
The closure of the eastern footpath on the A19 remains in place for the next 2 weeks.
'Off peak' 2 way traffic signals A19 - 15th February until 2nd March (no lights over the weekend)
'24hr' 2 way traffic signals A19 - 5th March until 16th March (no lights over the weekend)
Safe and clear access will be maintained for pedestrians 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.
