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.
