The Mount road works restart tomorrow

Scheme to be completed in January

Works at the junction of The Mount and Scarcroft Road will resume from Monday 6 January 2020, and are expected to last for up to 4 weeks.

This follows works in October to improve the junction of The Mount, Dalton Terrace and Albemarle Road, and also the junction of The Mount and Scarcroft Road.

The roadworks took longer than planned, so City of York Council is coming back to complete the final stage to refurbish and replace the traffic signals in January. This is to avoid any disruption on the run up to and during the Christmas period. 

Works will take place Monday to Friday 9am to 4:30pm and weekends 8am to 4pm.

This final stage is estimated to take no more than four weeks to complete.

Traffic management will be in place at the junction during the works and motorists are expected to experience some delays while the works are underway.

They are asked to plan their journey carefully and leave additional time if passing through the area. It is not anticipated that there will be any diversions or suspensions to bus services or stops, however, to allow construction to take place the inbound bus lane will be suspended during the works.  It will be also be necessary to suspend some of the on street parking on the cobbles on The Mount during the works and this will be advertised separately.

Controlled pedestrian crossings will be provided during construction to allow pedestrians to cross the road safely.  There will be some temporary footway closures in place to allow works to be undertaken, however, full access will be retained to all businesses and properties during construction.
