Barlby Roundabout Interim Traffic Management Newsletter 25th January 2017

This is an interim edition of your regular newsletter to provide you with information regarding the temporary traffic layout around the partially completed roundabout.
Many of you will have noticed that a few changes have taken place to the initial traffic management layout since the traffic was re-routed around the roundabout. This was required to improve traffic flow and increase driver awareness of the correct route and give way positions.
This current traffic management layout is now working well and will remain in this layout for the next couple of weeks. The diagram below illustrates the current layout which has been agreed in conjunction with NYCC.
 

 

Ramps

 

We would like to advise vehicles to slow down when approaching the ramps onto and off the new areas of surfacing as directed by the signs.
Please also be mindful of the temporary enforceable reduction in the speed limit of 60 mph to 40 mph to protect our workforce.
 

Barlby Roundabout Newsletter 10. Weeks 19 & 20 commencing 23rd January 2017

This is the tenth edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the roundabout construction on the existing A19/A163 Market Weighton Road junction and also changes to the existing York Road junction.
Those of you that drive through the site on a regular basis will have seen big changes this past couple of weeks.
We have completed the surfacing of the 'offline' sections of the roundabout and the traffic has now been diverted onto the roundabout running lanes. We were pleased to complete the surfacing works in 3 days, just before the latest spell of cold weather hit us.
The use of traffic lights will now only be required occasionally as we complete the remaining works.
During the next 2 weeks we will be completing the kerbs to the boundary of the new roundabout and traffic islands. Drainage and street lighting ducting to the roundabout and the west of the A19 will also be carried out.

New road layout

Please be mindful about the new temporary road layout. The signs and cones will direct you into the correct running lane. 
Please be aware that the temporary road layout will be regularly adjusted over the coming weeks to enable our workforce to work safely in different areas of the works.
We would like to advise vehicles to slow down when approaching the ramps onto and off the new areas of surfacing as directed by the signs.
When in operation the temporary traffic lights will be working daily between 9.30 am and 4pm. The A19 and Market Weighton Road will be returned to full lane running outside these times.
The A19 and Market Weighton Road and York Road will remain fully open during this period. Please allow extra time within your journey to allow for some disruption due to the temporary traffic lights during the hours noted above.
Please also be mindful of the temporary enforceable reduction in the speed limit of 60 mph to 40 mph to protect our workforce.

 

 

 

 

 

 Safety for children and the wider public

 

Whilst there are no public footpaths adjacent to the works we acknowledge that construction sites can be attractive places for children.
Please be assured that all hazardous areas of works will be securely fenced at all times to ensure the safety of the public. Our compound will be entirely fenced off with gates allowing access to site personnel and deliveries of plant and materials only. 

Site personnel and deliveries will access our compound from the existing farmer's access off Market Weighton Road. Please be aware of deliveries using this entrance on occasion.

Barlby Roundabout Newsletter 09. Weeks 17 & 18 commencing 9th January 2017

Happy New Year !
This is the ninth edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the roundabout construction on the existing A19/A163 Market Weighton Road junction and also changes to the existing York Road junction. After our Christmas closure the next few weeks will see big changes in the vicinity of the new roundabout. 
The kerbing works are now substantially complete. The street lights to the east of the A19 have been erected and are operational. The YW water main diversion works are also complete.
Next week we will be surfacing the new sections of the road. It will take approximately 4 days although this may change as we cannot lay surfacing material if the temperatures drop too much.
3 way traffic lights will be in operation during the usual hours 9.30am to 3.30pm to enable the surfacing machines and surfacing deliveries to access the areas safely. 

Upcoming changes to traffic management

 

After the new areas of the road are surfaced we need to direct the traffic around the newly formed roundabout to enable us to complete the remaining works. If all goes to plan the traffic management cones and signs will be changed to reflect this on the evening of Sunday 15th January. The roads will all remain open during this change over period. The route around the roundabout will be clearly signposted.
Please note that from this point ALL traffic coming out of the York Road Junction will be directed LEFT. Traffic from York Road wanting to travel south towards Selby need to drive around the roundabout first, before continuing south down the A19.
After this date traffic lights will be used periodically when required to ensure the safety of our workers where they have to work immediately alongside the A19. We again apologize for the delays that some of you will be experiencing.
When in operation the temporary traffic lights will be working daily between 9.30 am and 4pm. The A19 and Market Weighton Road will be returned to full lane running outside these times.
The A19 and Market Weighton Road and York Road will remain fully open during this period. Please allow extra time within your journey to allow for some disruption due to the temporary traffic lights during the hours noted above.
Please also be mindful of the temporary enforceable reduction in the speed limit of 60 mph to 40 mph to protect our workforce.
