The work consists of excavating the current tarmac surfacing, laying two new layers of tarmac and replacing road kerbs within vehicle crossings.
Residents are being offered a discount on any new driveway requirements that they may wish to commission while plant is in the area.
The large hole which appeared in the footpath on Hob Moor near the railway underpass has been repaired after we reported it for attention.

The report says,
“The replacement of the existing island has been proposed because the island is too narrow. It falls below minimum design guidance in terms of its overall width and the distance of its guard rails from the carriageway.
The substandard width results in difficulty for pedestrians in using the facility, especially those with prams and wheelchairs.
The substandard distance of the guardrail to the carriageway has resulted in vehicle strikes which in turn creates a maintenance liability.
The addition of a third pedestrian crossing on the north arm of the junction constitutes as ‘easy win’, in that it provides a desirable pedestrian facility without any significant detriment to the functioning of the junction.
There is no significant change to vehicular delays, queues, Practical Reserve Capacity or congestion.
Introduction of an additional pedestrian crossing on the north arm of the junction is a significant improvement for pedestrians as it serves a desire line accessing the inbound bus stop and Cross Keys public house.
Changes to traffic signals and junction layouts at George Hudson Street and East Parade in Heworth are also being considered
