Road Works on Heslington Lane in York


7:56am 25th February 2013

Road improvement works will be carried out this week to improve the road surface on Heslington Lane.

The aim of the scheme, say City of York Council is to use a material known as micro asphalt to form a new sealed surface to the carriageway. This restores skid resistance quickly with minimal disruption to the carriageway user, they add. The works are expected to take three days to complete subject to weather conditions.

As with any construction work, there will be disruption and inconvenience, say City of York Council and everything reasonably possible will be done to minimise the impact. Drivers and cyclists are asked to bear this in mind when planning their journey times and route, add the council.

Work will be carried out under a full road closure, say City of York Council, for safety reasons and a signed diversion will be in place during the works. They add that bus stops within the area of the works will not be in use during the period of construction, please ring 01904 551400 for bus route information.

City of York Council say that in order to carry out the work as effectively and efficiently as possible the constructors would be grateful if drivers could refrain from parking on Heslington Lane. The council add that residents are also asked to ensure that cars are removed from their driveway before 8am should they wish to use the vehicle while work is carried out adjacent to properties. The council say that if residents need to gain access to their property at any time during this process, they can ask a member of staff on site for assistance.

The Contractor carrying out the work will be Colas who will be responsible for public safety and providing access while the work is being carried out, say City of York Council. Normal working hours will be between 8am and 5pm and City of York Council will be supervising the works on site.
