Layerthorpe/Ebacorum Way road construction to begin next week
City of York Council will be constructing an access road to the new Ebacorum Way development on Layerthorpe from Monday 27th February. 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.
