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
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.
