RUBBISH!!!! THIS IS NOT A TIP

During the summer and particularly after good weekends, it is noticeable that the recycling bins at the Regen Centre are being used as a dumping ground for rubbish and waste accumulated at parties and BBQ’s. The bags of mixed waste have been left unsorted and open. Much of this waste has included food waste, this facility does not deal with food waste, the bins are clearly marked for glass, cans, paper & clothing. The waste must be sorted and deposited in the allocated bins, food is not accepted.   Waste dumped on the floor is open to vermin and gets blown around in the wind.

Dumping of waste in this area constitutes fly-tipping and as such penalties apply.

This facility is an asset for the village residents and we don’t want to risk losing it – if it continues to be used incorrectly we do risk it being removed. The Selby DC operatives are not employed to pick up rubbish but to empty the bins. Please help to use this facility correctly and keep this community asset.

North Yorkshire County Council – Selby Bypass works to begin next week

Work on the final phase of the reconstruction of Selby bypass is due to start next Wednesday. This will complete a three-phase scheme by North Yorkshire County Council carried out over the past three years to ensure the town has the bypass it needs to support its economic future.

Work is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, 9 August. The anticipated completion date is 13 October. NYCC will look at the possibility of extended working, such as night working, to shorten the timescale.

Advanced notice signs will advise motorists of the area of closure, and the diversion routes around the works will be clearly signed.

CAWOOD BRIDGE CLOSURE FOR REPAIRS

Due on site until 15th September 2017, with the road/bridge completely closed to vehicles and pedestrians from 24th July 2017 until 3rd September 2017.

A 6 way traffic light system (4 way at Cawood junction, with 2 additional trafflic light heads vehicle activated on Old Road and King Street) will be in place at times until 15th September 2017 (installed to give the contractor a safety zone to carry out the works to the bridge). The 6 way system will be monitored throughout the works to avoid any major traffic delays. The 6 way system will replace the current 4 way lights at the junction in Cawood, with traffic lights coming from York on the York side of the bridge.

There are plans to have two ambassadors for HGV. One will be stationed at the junction for Kelfield, and the other at the cross roads near Sherburn. This is because the signs are still to be erected to warn HGVs that there is no access over Cawood Bridge.

The contractor will have two site compounds. One will be within the small seating area on the Cawood side, using the first 5 parking bays nearest to this area on Old Road. The other site will be on the York side at the end of Bridge View. All access for local residents and commercial properties will be maintained at all times.

Throughout the majority of works, activity will be carried out under the bridge. There will be a screen in the Pickled Postie to provide more details and diagrams.


CAWOOD BRIDGE REPAIRS PLAN:

Feedback from Cawood residents has prompted North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) to amend proposals for a £1m scheme to strengthen Cawood Bridge and increase the bridge's capacity from 7.5 tonnes to 10 tonnes.

The bridge will need to be closed to road traffic for the installation of the 132 steel plates and erection of scaffolding for use in painting the bridge. This closure will now be carried out during the 2017 school summer holidays, beginning on 25 July and potentially running until 1 September. However, it is anticipated that the work will not require the full closure period as some work is being deferred until next year (2018).

Originally, it was planned to refurbish the motor and electronics that operate the bridge. However, the reduced closure period means there will not be time either to refurbish or replace the motor. Therefore, the County Council intends to return in 2018 to replace the motor and operating system with new, custom-made equipment. This would require a new closure of only a few days in 2018 to remove and replace the equipment.

The parish council has canvassed residents' views on the revised plan and no one has raised an objection.

ROAD WORKS NOTICE

A19 Road From Selby Road To Main Street, Riccall, North Yorkshire

07 June — 09 June

   

Delays unlikely Some carriageway incursion

 

Works location: Approx 438m South Of Selby Road...

   

Works description: -

   

Responsibility for works: Yorkshire Water

   

Current status: Advanced planning

   

WARNING - USE OF 24HR TEMPORARY TRAFFIC LIGHTS ON THE A19 FROM TUESDAY 30TH MAY UNTIL SATURDAY 3RD JUNE INCLUSIVE

A number of service diversions will be taking place that will impact the A19 over the coming weeks. These include the diversion of water mains, gas mains, electric cables and BT and other communication cables and fibres.
The diversions are required because some of them lie too close to the proposed sheet piled wall to the west of the A19. Other diversions are required because they need to be lifted to suit the new level of the junction.
Some of the service diversions require long trenches to be opened up and large 'pits' to be excavated within the carriageway of the A19 where joints are to be carried out. The jointing pits have to remain open for several days while the joints are carried out. Unfortunately this means that 24hr temporary traffic lights are required to be set up on the A19 during this period.
This will inevitably lead to major disruption of the traffic using this route. Peak hour traffic is expected to be considerably worse than usual, impacting not only the A19 but the surrounding road network. 

On Tuesday 30th May the water main diversion will commence and will take 5 days.

The use of 24 hr traffic lights on the A19 will commence at 9am on Tuesday 30th May. The temporary lights will remain in place until the evening of Saturday 3rd June.

Advance warning signs will be erected several days in advance of the works commencing.


I would advise you to seek alternative routes during this period although I appreciate that this will not be possible for local residents and businesses.
Provision for pedestrians and others using the footpaths will be maintained during these operations. Please follow the directions provided by the signs.
We apologise for any inconvenience for those delayed due to the traffic lights caused by these necessary works.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN OUR COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH TEAM?

We already have a small team which would be more effective with additional members. The deployments, whch have been taking place on York Road, Main street and now Kelfield Road, the main access/exit point of the village, are making a difference in reducing the speed of vehicles entering and exiting the village. Now the team has made a start, it would be able to be active more often with more volunteers.

Are you interested in helping by volunteering a couple of hours once in a while? Please contact us by email clerk@riccallparishcouncil.org.uk  or call on 249222 if you would like more information.

Thank you
