Germany Beck

Newsletter 21

17 March 2017

Weeks 41 & 42 commencing 20th March 2017

This is the 21st edition of the newsletter that keeps you up to date with the progress of the Germany Beck junction works on the A19 in Fulford.

Firstly we would like to thank those of you using Fordlands Road for your patience at the traffic lights. Unfortunately there is not the space to construct a 2 way diversion so we are endeavouring to progress our works across Fordlands Road as quickly as possible and return you to 2 way traffic. The temporary traffic lights will be in operation for another 2 weeks.

In other areas we have busy carrying out reinforced concrete works to the sheet piled retaining wall.

During the next 2 weeks we will -

• Pour the concrete slab to the rear of the sheet piled wall to the east of the A19
• Construct the concrete 'capping beam' which sits on top of the sheet piled wall
• Construct new Fordlands Road
• Import further stone into site to bring the embankment up to its final level

The closure of the eastern footpath on the A19 remains in place.


During the next 2 weeks traffic lights will continue to be in operation on Fordlands Road. Once Fordlands Road has been constructed to its new alignment, traffic will be returned to using 2 lanes again. Safe accessible footpaths have been provided for use by pedestrians at all times.

We apologise for any inconvenience for those using Fordlands Road.

Safety for children and the wider public.

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.
