Resurfacing works on Burton Stone Lane and Towthorpe Road

City of York Council will carry out resurfacing works on Towthorpe Road and Burton Stone Lane from next week.

The works on Burton Stone Lane will take place from Monday 14 October for approximately four weeks. This will include the junction of Crichton Avenue up to the junction of Burton Green.

The works will take place during the daytime between 8am and 6pm. In order to carry out the works safely, the use of a temporary road closure from the junction of Crichton Avenue to the junction of Burton Green will be necessary.

This road closure will remain in operation 24/7 until works are complete. All onsite parking will be suspended during this period.

Works will be carried out in short sections on a rolling process to minimise disruption to residents. Where works are taking place across junctions, into cul-de-sacs, works will be carried out in in two sections to let residents in and out. Please be advised that there will be periods where no access in or out will be allowed.

The works on Towthorpe Road will start on Monday 7 October and will take up to five days (weather permitting). These will include resurfacing the road and the reinstatement of all road markings and will be carried out between 9.15am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

In order to carry out these works safely the use of a temporary road closure from the junction of Mallard Way to a point 50m north of West Nooks junction will be necessary whilst works are taking place.

A clearly signed diversion route will be set out for through traffic. Site staff will be on hand to advise and assist residents about the access restrictions once the works are ongoing.

All on street parking will be suspended at these times but any specific access requirements maybe arranged by speaking to the site traffic management operatives who will co-ordinate with residents and business requirements around ongoing construction operations.

Any vehicle remaining on the street during the suspension time may be liable to a parking fine and removal costs.   

Household waste and recycling collections will take place before 9.15am so please have all containers and bins out by 7am on the day of collection. Buses will be diverted during working hours via Station Road and Calf Close.

In addition to the above, the council will be carrying out kerbing and drainage works on 30 September for a period of 5 days working 9.15am and 5pm Monday to Friday. These works will be carried out under local traffic management, will not affect access and the road will be open as normal.

For both schemes, emergency services will be permitted through the works at all times. Cyclists will have to dismount and use the footways.

As with any construction work, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption and inconvenience to the public, however the council will try at all times to keep any disruption to a minimum.
