Works to the A19 continues as we look towards the final layer of surfacing being laid week commencing 23rd July.
The north bound carriageway has been lifted to match the levels of the south bound carriageway and the traffic islands are being installed.
The brick work wall continues.
The traffic signal equipment is being installed.
During the next 2 weeks the masonry wall will continue along the concrete capping beam. The section of beam across the culvert will be pieced up.
The new traffic islands will be completed enabling the traffic signal installation to continue.
Any damaged kerbs and paving slabs will be replaced in preparation for final surfacing works week commencing Monday 23rd July.
Pedestrians will continue to use the new eastern footpath while the western footpath remains closed until the end of the works.
Elsewhere on site we are continuing with a deep foul sewer diversion and the first roads into the new residential development following the ongoing drainage installation.
Commencing Monday 23rd July there will be a series of night time closures to the A19. This will close both the northbound carriageway and the south bound carriageway completely at the junction location.
The full A19 closures are required in order to carry out the final surfacing layer and install road markings to the A19 junction.
The works are expected to take 4 nights. Further details including the exact hours of the closure will be published in this newsletter the week before the closure.
Fordlands Road will remain open, but with access to Fordlands Road from the north only.
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.
