Work starts on congestion relieving link road on Layerthorpe

 

The York Council has announced today that will be constructing an access road to the new Ebacorum Way development on Layerthorpe from Monday 27 February.

This is the final part of the, much delayed, James Street access route which will link Heworth Green to Lawrence Street. It is expected to reduce the volume of traffic using Mill Lane and nearby roads.

The work is expected to take six weeks to complete, weather permitting.

The work will also include connecting water, gas and electricity supplies to the development and replacing the traffic lights. In order to carry out the work safely, three way temporary traffic signals will be used. The signals will be operational at all times throughout the six weeks. The footway on the development side will be closed with an alternative route being provided for pedestrians.

Site staff will be on hand to offer advice about the access restrictions whilst works are ongoing. Specific access requirements can be arranged by speaking to the site manager who will co-ordinate with residents and business to help minimise any disruption.

As with any construction work, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption. Residents and businesses are assured that everything reasonably possible will be done to keep this to a minimum, however motorists should expect some delays and plan their journey accordingly.

The contractor carrying out the work will be responsible for safety.

Controversial Tudor Road/Kingsway West bollard scheme to be implemented on Thursday

City of York Council will be installing a new traffic island at the junction of Tudor Road and Kingsway West on Thursday 24 November.

Tudor Road - Kingsway West traffic island plan

Tudor Road – Kingsway West traffic island plan

The controversial plan was opposed by the majority of residents when it was first suggested in 2010 by transport officials. The then LibDem led Council implemented alternative safety improvements, but the “keep left” traffic island plan has now been revived.

Unfortunately other aspects of a “safe routes to school” programme – which involved the construction of a pedestrian crossing at the junction – have not been pursued by the Council.

The work on thr new bollard is expected to take one day to complete, weather permitting. Work will take place between 9.30am – 3.30pm.

In order to carry out the work safely, the junction will be closed to all traffic, except emergency vehicles. A clearly signed diversion route will be in place. If residents require vehicle access to properties located within the works area, they may be permitted to access to their property through the works as long as it is safe to do so. Residents are asked to inform on-site traffic management operatives to ensure site safety.

As with any construction work, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption. Residents are assured that everything reasonably possible will be done to keep this to a minimum. However motorists should expect some delays and plan their journey accordingly.

The contractor carrying out the work is Rediweld, and they will be responsible for safety on site.
