Whilst respecting the principals of free speech, Riccall Parish Council expect comments to be decent and inoffensive to others. Any material which the Parish Council considers offensive or defamatory will be removed immediately. This may include all of the comments being removed from certain news stories.


During the past 2 weeks we have been installing the remaining sheet piles to form the retaining wall to the east of the A19. We have also been preparing for the concrete works which form part of the retaining wall structure.
The piling works have progressed well and the disturbance felt by our closest residents has been less this time. We expect just another 2 days of piling for this phase, to be complete by the end of Tuesday 21st. However we have 6 piles that are refusing to be driven using the equipment we have on site. Unfortunately this means bringing back the noisier 'drop hammer' attachment, used on site during the previous visit. The drop hammer will be used on Tuesday for one day. We apologise for the noise and inconvenience.
The piling rig will be dismantled and removed from site Tuesday and Wednesday. It will leave on several large low loaders. The low loaders have been given official permission by the CYC Traffic Project Officer to turn left onto the A19 after safely stopping the traffic for a short period. They have been advised to avoid the peak hours of 7.30am to 9.30am.
Traffic lights will be in operation on the A19 from 9am to 3.30pm on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st
The eastern footpath of the A19 will remain closed.






The temporary road surface being constructed adjacent to Fordlands Road is required to divert Fordlands Road traffic whilst we connect up the embankment drainage across Fordlands Road. Due to the constraints of the site the temporary road surface is only one lane wide and so during this period Fordlands Road traffic will be controlled with temporary traffic lights which will be in operation 24hrs per day for approximately 4 weeks. Once the drainage is through and Fordlands Road reconstructed, traffic will be returned to the road using 2 lanes again.
We apolygise for any inconvenience.
