“Not before time”
As part of the Big Spring Clean 2015, City of York Council has planned a major clean-up of the verges and laybys on the A64.
Alongside 45 different community activities to support the Big Spring Clean, council staff will start work on the stretch of the outer ring road from Bilbrough Top to the Hopgrove Roundabout on 23 March.
Motorists are advised that sections of the dual carriageway’s single, inside lanes will be closed to protect workers, from 8pm after the evening peak and reopened ready for the morning peak.
Council teams will be undertaking other aspects of spring cleaning in the same week including brushing up signage and traffic islands across the city. Following council work to prune trees on the riverbank, together with the River Foss Society, council teams will also help clean up the Foss waterway and banks.
Council staff are also volunteering to join in litter picks organised for the areas in and around Hazel Court and West Offices.
