City of York Council is to carry out patching repairs to the carriageway on Salisbury Terrace in the week beginning 9th November. The programmed start date for the work is 10th November. The works are programmed to take approximately 2 days to complete, working weekdays only between 09:00 and 16:00. The areas affected are shown on the plan on the reverse of this letter.
In order to carry out these works safely, the road will be closed to all vehicles. There will be a diversion route in place each day until the works have been completed, at which time the road will be reopened to traffic.
Buses will not be able to service this area – an alternative route will be arranged by the bus companies.
Due to the nature of the works and the size and quantity of machinery required to carry out the works, it will not always be possible for residents to gain vehicular access to their properties.
Parking on Salisbury Terrace will be suspended for the duration of the works
Pedestrian access will be available at all times where possible. Cyclists will have to dismount and use the footways when travelling through the affected areas.

From Monday 7th September City of York Council will undertake routine maintenance work on the whole of the A1237 outer ring road.
The work will take place between 8pm – 6am, to minimise disruption to residents any work close to housing will be carried out before 11pm.
The work will include hedge cutting and road gully / channel clearance to help improve visibility, redefine carriageway boundaries and resolve flooding problems.
Work will start at Hopgrove roundabout and progress anti-clockwise along the A1237. The work is scheduled to be completed by Saturday 3 October. Traffic lights will be used when work is taking place to ensure the safety of operatives.
As with any maintenance work on roads, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption. Residents are assured that everything reasonably possible will be done to keep this to a minimum; however motorists should expect some delays and plan their journey accordingly.

The work will aim to reduce the amount of ‘overshoot’ accidents where drivers on Hallcroft Lane may not realise they are approaching a crossroad junction and fail to give way to traffic on Manor Heath. This has lead to a number of serious incidents at the junction.
The work will see the Hallcroft Lane section of the junction widened to allow a pedestrian island to be included. Coloured surfacing will also be used to help road users differentiate between the major and minor roads. Signage in the area will also be improved.
The work is scheduled to take three weeks to complete, with work starting on Monday 7 September. Work will take place Monday to Friday between 8.30am – 4.30pm during the first two weeks. Traffic will be managed by stop/go signals with no alterations to the bus service. This will be carried out by City of York Council.
During the third week whilst resurfacing is taking place a temporary full road closure will be in place on Hallcroft Lane from the Horseman Lane junction to the Manor Heath junction. The road will be closed between 9:15am and 4:15pm. An alternative route for diverted traffic will be signed via Horseman Lane, School Lane, Manor Heath.
Additionally to carry out the surfacing work at the junction of Manor Heath / Hallcroft Lane and Hagg Lane a temporary full road closure will be in place at the junction between 6:00pm and midnight on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 September. An alternative route for diverted traffic will be signed.
We are pleased to report that the footpath works on Turnmire Road have been completed on time. The work began on 20th July and had been expected to take five weeks.
As well as the footpath improvements, driveway crossovers have been resurfaced, and the grass verges have been left in a decent state.
This represents an improvement on the work done last year on Lerecroft Road, from which many of the grass verges have never recovered.
We welcome feedback from residents on priority areas for road and footpath improvements, so that we can bring these to the table in discussions on how resources can be best deployed.
The York Council has said where they hope to undertake resurfacing work over the next few months.
The list does not include any supplementary work which may be scheduled as a result of the recent decision of the Council to increase the highways budget.

The council’s Highways Department will start work on Monday 20th July to reconstruct the footpath on Turnmire Road. The scheme is expected to take 5 weeks, weather permitting. Work will start at 8am and finish at 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Paving flags will be taken up and relayed, with broken and worn ones replaced. Vehicle crossings will be reconstructed in concrete, and some road kerbs are to be replaced.
Properties that had hedges and vegetation overhanging the footpath have been asked to cut it back to allow the workers access to the rear of the footway.
On a recent visit to York College Ann, Stephen and Ashley raised the issue of the ‘missing link’ in the cycle track that will connect Tadcaster Road with the Green Lane.
The link currently comes to an abrupt halt at the bottom end of the Revival development, on the old College site.
Environmental consultants have been commissioned to survey the area where a path would potentially go, as the area is an established newt habitat. The outcome of the survey will determine which alignment the path will take and what time of year would be best for the construction to cause minimum disturbance to the wildlife.
Once there is clarity on the wildlife issues and best route, it should be possible to proceed with construction as the funding has already been secured.
The College has also confirmed that it expects the building work currently taking place on site to be completed in August.
