The next phase of the work to the Outer Ringroad Roundabout improvements at Wetherby Road roundabout will see some evening work which will close Wetherby Road 24th-28th September between 8pm and 5 am (between junction with Ridgeway and the A1237). To anticipate residents concerns about the noise relating to the evening work there will be an officer available to respond to residents concerns at all time when the work is happening.

Wetherby Road Plan

The letter from the council to local residents states;

Highway Improvement Scheme – A1237 Wetherby Rd Works

City of York Council will be carrying out surfacing works at the above said location commencing on Monday 10th September 2018 for a period of three weeks (weather permitting).

The works will be carried out in three phases as follows:

Phase 1 (10th Sept to 14th Sept working nights 8.00pm – 5.00am): Works will be carried out off-line with the A1237 and Wetherby Rd being open as normal. There may be short periods where portable traffic lights are utilised on the A1237.

Phase 2 (17th Sept to 21st Sept working nights 8.00pm – 5.00am): Works will be carried out off-line with the A1237 and Wetherby Rd being open as normal. There may be short periods where portable traffic lights are utilised on the A1237.

Phase 3 (24th Sept to 28th Sept working nights 8.00pm – 5.00am): Wetherby Road closed from the junction of Beckfield Lane to the A1237. 3-way traffic lights will be in operation on the A1237 and Rufforth arm of Wetherby Rd with traffic down to a single lane.

In order to carry out the works in Phase 3 safely the use of a temporary road closure on Wetherby Road will be necessary whilst works are taking place. See plan on reverse for location of closed off area. Outside of working hours the road will remain open as normal.

Clearly signed diversion routes (Beckfield Lane > A59 & vice versa) will be set out for through traffic. The closure is to ensure that adequate Health and Safety is maintained for both local residents, the travelling public and the Contractor. Site staff will be on hand to advise and assist residents about the access restrictions once the works are ongoing. Your assistance will be much appreciated.

Emergency services will be permitted through the works in any situation. Cyclists will be subject to the same traffic management as other road user vehicles.

As with any construction work, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption and inconvenience to the public, however the contractor will try at all times to keep any disruption to a minimum.

I will be monitoring the works on site, but if you wish to discuss this work in further detail, please do not hesitate to contact me upon where I will be only too pleased to help with your enquiry.

There will be further night-time works in November which you will be notified about in advance
