Work is due to start today on resurfacing the carriageway in Severus Street.
Temporary parking restrictions will apply for a couple of days
The City of York Council will start work week commencing 18th September 2017 to reconstruct some of the footways shown on the plan below. This scheme is programmed to take 2 weeks, weather permitting.
The work consists of excavating the current tarmac surfacing, laying two new layers of tarmac and replacing road kerbs within vehicle crossings.
Residents are being offered a discount on any new driveway requirements that they may wish to commission while plant is in the area.
From Monday 14 August City of York Council is set to improve the Rougier Street bus stops, some of the most used in the city, with new paving and kerbs ready for a major overhaul later in the year.
The work will take place after the scaffolding which has been used to redevelop Roman House is removed. The area will then be repaved ahead of the new bus shelter being installed in October.
Unfortunately, it will not be possible for buses to stop on the Roman House side of Rougier Street whilst the scaffolding is being removed or the pavement renewed. Because of this, bus stops on this side of the road (CA-CC) will be closed for seven weeks between 14 August and 24 September.
Bus route diversions
From Monday 31st July for up to two weeks, Coastliner services will divert via Monkgate and Heworth Green to avoid possible delays due to traffic signal works in Heworth Village. East Parade and Heworth Road will not be served.
Rougier Street stops CA-CC will be closed from Monday 14th August for seven weeks during scaffolding removal and footway repair works. During this time, the nearest alternative stops will be:
- Rail Station RF-RJ for services 13 (to Copmanthorpe), 16 (to Acomb), 21 (to Colton), 24 (to Acomb), 26 (to South Bank), 37 (to Tadcaster), 66 (to Nunnery Lane), 840, 843 and 845 (to Leeds), Cityzap (to Leeds);
- Temporary stop Micklegate CL for services 3 (to Askham Bar Park & Ride) and 7 (to Designer Outlet Park & Ride);
- Station Avenue RM for services 6 (to Clifton Moor) and 181 (to Sheriff Hutton/ Castle Howard);
- Station Road CD-CE for services 10 (to Poppleton), 11 (to Bishopthorpe), 12 and 14 (to Foxwood).
Stops for services heading towards Stonebow and Piccadilly will not be affected by these works. All other stops will remain open as normal.
Stonebow stops SA, SB and SC are closed until the end of 2017 due to major refurbishment works at Stonebow House.
- Monks Cross Park & Ride (service 9) will stop on Pavement, outside M&S.
All other services will use the temporary stop closer to the Peasholme Green end of Stonebow, between the junctions with Garden Place and Hungate.
Depending on the bus route, the nearest alternative stops will be at Low Ousegate, Station Avenue, the Railway Station or a temporary stop at Micklegate. A list of bus services showing the nearest alternative stops during the closure period is available at www.itravelyork.info
Work is expected to be completed by Wednesday 23 August.
Work will take place from 9.30am – 4:00pm, Monday to Friday. To allow work to take place safely temporary signals will be in operation during the works which may lead to some delays for motorists.
The work will include a full overhaul of the traffic signal equipment, including changes to the pedestrian crossing equipment to facilitate puffin style near side red and green man displays. The existing pedestrian crossing will also be widened are realigned following feedback.
From Monday 5 June, City of York Council will start a new highways scheme which will see a number of improvements made to Clarence Street – located off Gillygate and Lord Mayor’s Walk.
The work is estimated to take around five weeks to complete and will include resurfacing areas of the road and footpaths and installing new traffic lights at the Clarence Street/Lord Mayor’s Walk junction.
New pedestrian crossings will also be installed and improvements will be made to footpaths and drainage too. Clarence Street will be resurfaced as will the area of the Clarence Street/ Lord Mayor’s Walk junction and sections of Gillygate and Claremont Terrace. (more…)
This is to allow for further repairs along this route prior to the resurfacing works which are due to be happen on the 23 May.
The work was originally expected to take two weeks to complete, from 24 April. To minimise disruption work will take place from 9.15am – 3.45pm.
In order to carry out these works safely stop and go traffic management will be operating whilst work is taking place.
Despite some confusion about the date and scale of of road works in the Windsor Garth area improvements should be evident this week. Resurfacing work was delayed until the Hob Stones development was completed
Signs say road will be closed on Friday
Some work has already been completed.
