Major roadworks are ongoing at several locations in the York area.
City of York Council is doing everything possible to limit disruption, but periods of traffic delay and changes to access are, unfortunately, inevitable when carrying out road improvements of this scale.
Saturday 3rd February: The traffic island will be removed. Work will start at 7am under 3-way temporary traffic lights, enabling Wheldrake Lane to remain open (no right turn in access) but with single lane working on the A19. The island removal is expected to be completed by 2pm, at which time the single lane working will be removed and the A19 reopened to two way traffic.
Monday 5th February (for up to two weeks): Work will start to realign the kerb line to the west side of A19 near the access to Deighton Grove Lane. To reduce the impact of the road works, work will be undertaken between approximately 10am – 3.30pm using 3 way traffic lights with single lane traffic operating on the A19. Wheldrake Lane will remain open but with no right turn access off the A19. This phase is expected to take up to 2 weeks to complete. Outside the working times (3.30pm – 10am) the A19 will be reopened to 2-way traffic flow with temporary signals at the Wheldrake Lane junction.
Lendal Arch gyratory
Works are also continuing at Lendal Arch to upgrade the signals and improve the footpaths in the area. The next phase of works is expected to start on Monday 5th February. This is likely to be the most disruptive phase as it will temporarily reduce the road width on Station Avenue down to one lane. Keep up to date with the latest bus diversions.
Piccadilly remains closed to all southbound traffic until Friday 9th February during utility works. Keep up to date with the latest bus diversions.
A64 Grimston Bar interchange
Highways England are due to start work renewing signals at the A64 Grimston Bar interchange this evening. This work is expected to be completed by 24th February.
Residents are urged to plan ahead, allow more time for journeys on these routes and to consider alternatives.
