There will be Stop / Go traffic controls on Alness Drive from 8am to 3.30pm, Monday 30th October to Friday 3rd November, during footpath resurfacing works.
We are pleased to report that work will shortly get underway to resurface footpaths on Alness Drive and on Deveron Way. The sections of path to be resurfaced are marked on the map below. The area of block paving on Deveron Way is to be replaced with tarmac.
Letters are being delivered to residents, with a request that any vegetation overhanging the footpath is cut back. The work is due to get underway from 30 October and is expected to take eight weeks.
The City of York Council will start work week commencing 18th September 2017 to reconstruct some of the footways shown on the plan below. This scheme is programmed to take 2 weeks, weather permitting.
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.
Cllr Stephen Fenton undertook an audit of pavements in the Woodthorpe area at the weekend. With the cold weather approaching, the freeze / thaw action can mean that already weak areas can deteriorate rapidly. By reporting trouble spots now, remedial action can be taken before winter sets in.
Some of the worst areas of pavement on Deveron Way have been patched up following action taken by Cllr Ann Reid last month.
Stephen has reported a number of issues in need of attention, including on Annan Close, Spey Bank, Ryecroft Avenue and Silverdale Court, pictured below.
The Council has revealed how it plans to spend £2.6 million on highways and footpath resurfacing over the next financial year.
The provisional expenditure is down on the £3.4 million being invested during the current year.
That in turn was well down on the budget agreed by the last Liberal Democrat administration which held power until 2011 and which regularly invested over £5 million a year in the highways network.
Carriageway surfaces are now breaking up and the repairs backlog is growing.
In the Dringhouses and Woodthorpe ward only part of the Moor Lane carriageway will be resurfaced.
No footpaths in the area will be resurfaced.

A final Council highways budget for next year will be announced in March.
The decision, on which roads to resurface, was taken in another “behind closed doors” meeting. There was no consultation with residents on the options.
