Notification – Carriageway and resurfacing and drainage improvement works at Cravengate

PBS Construction LTD, on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council, will be undertaking carriageway resurfacing works on Cravengate. This is to provide you with an update and clarification of these upcoming works.

The works are currently programmed to commence on Monday 27th February and will be carried out under a full road closure to through traffic for a period of 15 weekdays. However, vehicle access will be maintained to properties and business within the closure.

The works will involve:

• Resurfacing of the existing carriageway – 28th Feb to 15th March

This will occur between the southern end of Cravengate, next to the Old Cello Workshop to just before Victoria roundabout opposite Temple Square.

• Renewal of existing traffic calming measures – 16th March to 17th March

Except the speed cushions outside No 1 Cravengate, which will be relocated slightly to the south to improve access to property.

• Installation of upstand kerbs at the entrance to Temple View – 09th March to 10th March

This measure will be introduced to reduce water ponding issues by redirecting surface water into the existing gullies.

• Carriageway drainage works – 06th March to 09th March

The levels of existing highway gullies will be adjusted to suit finished road levels. A new gully will be installed adjacent to the kerb line near Cravengate Nursery to improve carriageway drainage.

• Clearing of overgrown vegetation along the length of Cravengate, where required. – 01st March to 03rd March

A plan showing the extent of the works is enclosed for your information.

Advance warning signage advising of the works will be installed on site shortly. Whilst the works are in progress, a fully signed diversion will be in place. During the works traffic will be diverted via Rosemary Lane onto Bargate and egress will be via the Market Place. The diversion plan drawing is enclosed for your information.

On-site personnel will assist in managing access to properties and businesses within the closure. Please be advised there may be extended periods when access will not be possible due to the nature of the works and physical constraints of the site. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Please note, this work is part of an extensive programme and therefore, some adjustment to this start date or the duration of the works may be necessary should unforeseen circumstances such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise.
