Barlby Roundabout Newsletter 05. Weeks 8 & 9 commencing 7th November 2016

Ongoing temporary traffic lights on the A19 and Market Weighton Road


For the next 9 weeks temporary 3 way traffic lights will be in operation Monday to Friday. The lights are required to ensure the safety of our workers where they have to work immediately alongside the A19.
The temporary traffic lights will be in operation 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 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.


This is the fifth 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. 
Over the past couple of weeks we have been excavating to the south of Market Weighton Road for the construction of the new carriageway. We have completed the majority of the kerbs to the north of Market Weighton Road. Part of the roundabout can now clearly be seen.
We have also carried out work to lower some BT fibre optic cables below the new carriageway.
A contractor for Yorkshire Water has been present on site to commence the diversion of a water main around the perimeter of the new roundabout. These are the blue pipes that can be seen as you drive past.
Over the next 2 weeks we will continue to import stone to the south of Market Weighton Road and continue laying kerbs.

The works to install the new water main will also continue
