Ageing and outdated traffic signals at Clifton Moorgate and Hurricane Way junction are set to be replaced next week by City of York Council.
Works are estimated to take around seven weeks to complete and will start on Monday 22 March.
New, more reliable, traffic signals will be installed on the busy junction located within the Clifton Moor shopping area, North of York. In addition to this there will be improved pedestrian and cycling crossing with them being widened and resurfaced.
The works will also enable the new systems to link direct to the council’s Traffic and Control Centre, so that the Network Monitoring Officers can manage the flow of traffic better in busy periods by adjusting traffic lights to best suit traffic conditions.
The works will be carried out by the council and specialist traffic signals contractor Dynniq. Generally, the hours of working will be 9am – 4:30pm, seven days a week.
In order to safely construct part of the work some evening works may be required. Notification of these will be provided in advance.
To allow us to undertake the work safely and to minimise disruption to users there will be some restrictions during the works.
- A reduction in the speed limit though the works from 40mph to 30mph.
- Banning of the right turn into Hurricane Way. This will be for a two week period and only be operational during off peak period (9:30 to 4pm). A signed diversion route (using the Stirling Road / Longwood Road roundabout) will be put in place.
- Banning of the left turn into Hurricane Way. This will be for one week and only be operational during the off peak (09:30 – 4pm). A signed diversion route (using the outer ring road roundabout) will be put in place.
The junction will be operating under temporary signals during the traffic signal replacement works and motorists are expected to experience delays while the works are underway.
Controlled pedestrian crossings will be provided during construction to allow pedestrians to cross the road safely. Some temporary footway closures will be in place to allow works to be undertaken, however, full access will be retained to all businesses and properties during construction and pedestrian and cyclist routes through the works will be clearly signed
Those using the junction are urged to plan ahead, allow more time for journeys on these routes and to consider alternatives and to use public transport where possible.
