City of York Council will carry out footway alterations and carriageway reconstruction and resurfacing works from the junction of Coppergate to the access road to the Principal Courts/Castle Museum from 12 March for approximately two weeks.
Preparatory work involving footway widening for new bus stops between Lower Friargate and Cumberland Street and opposite the Magistrates Courts is ongoing at present. This work is being carried out under temporary traffic signals.
The carriageway resurfacing works are programmed to start on the 12 March, working from 7am to 11pm. To carry out the carriageway works safely, a 24-hour one-way lane closure will be necessary for the whole period of the works to prevent traffic entering the City from the Tower Street/Skeldergate Bridge end. At the citybound point of closure, a signed diversion route will operate via Skeldergate Bridge, Nunnery Lane, Station Road, Rougier Street and Low Ousegate to the Coppergate end point of closure.
Anyone needing vehicular access to Clifford Street/Tower Street from adjacent side streets or properties, will need to follow the one-way outbound traffic flow.
Bus stops will be relocated during the times of the works and notices will be posted to redirect passengers to the nearest available bus stop.
The Contractor carrying out the work will be City of York Council Highways.
