Roadworks On Askham Fields Lane Roundabout


5:37am 30th August 2013

City of York Council will carry out essential resurfacing works on the roundabout on Askham Fields Lane from tonight (Friday 30 August).

The works are due to take two nights in total to complete, working Friday and Saturday nights between the hours of 10pm and 5am.

To carry out the works safely, the council say a road closure will be in place and there will be a signed diversion route in operation for local and through traffic.

They add that pedestrian access will be available at all times. Cyclists will have to dismount and use the footways when travelling through the affected areas.

Bus services will be diverted whilst the works are ongoing. You can contact Bus Info on 01904 551400 for the revised arrangements. 

City of York Council say "As with any construction work, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption and inconvenience but everything reasonably possible will be done to keep this to a minimum. However, motorists should expect some delays and plan their journey accordingly".
