Notification of Highway Works, A170 Ings Lane Roundabout and Ings Lane

North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking highway works on the A170 roundabout and Ings Lane.

The works are currently programmed to commence on Monday 20 November 2017 and last for four weeks. It is initially planned that works will be undertaken during week days and nights, but there is the potential that the works will be undertaken during weekends. It should be noted that the programme of works is weather dependent.

The current planned programme of works is in three stages as follows:  

Stage One – A170 Roundabout

oThe works are widening of A170 New Road / Ings Lane roundabout and the exit to Ings Lane including re-landscaping of the roundabout island. The works are programmed to commence 20 November for 15 days and will be undertaken during daytime hours. Traffic is to be controlled under temporary 4-way traffic lights.

Stage Two – Ings Lane from Gawtersike Lane Junction southbound to the Industrial Park.

oThe works are maintenance and surfacing of the carriageway between Gawtersike Lane and the Industrial Park. The works are programmed to commence on 29 November for 14 days. The Ings Lane works in the rural section will be undertaken during night-time hours between 1900 hours and 0500 hours. The works shall be carried out under a manned closure with access to residents and businesses when possible. Emergency vehicles will be permitted at all times.

Stage Three – Ings Lane between the A170 Ings Lane Roundabout and Gawtersike Lane.

oThe works are widening of the carriageway at two locations between Brinsdale House and Muirfield and will include reconstruction of a small section of footway. The works are programmed to commence on 5 December for 14 days. The Ings Lane works in the urban area will be undertaken during daytime hours and shall be carried out under a manned closure with access through the works for HGVs and emergency vehicles only. All other vehicles will be diverted along Gawtersike Lane.

The works may inevitably restrict vehicular access to properties, but our Contractor will try to assist you where possible through the duration of the works through the use of on-site personnel tasked with managing access. Please be advised that there will be periods when access will not be possible due to the nature of the works and physical constraints of the site. We request your assistance in the following ways:-

Please contact the Contractor’s Call Centre on 0115 9244 555 to identify any special access needs you may have during the work period;

Parking restrictions will apply in the vicinity of the works area, and you are asked to assist by refraining from parking in areas denoted by cones and notices during working hours;

Cooperate and comply with any instructions issued by the traffic management operatives and take extra care whilst within the works area.

Access for pedestrians will be catered for within the traffic management. If you do have a particular access requirement then please approach a site operative who will be happy to assist with arrangements wherever possible. Please note that the works necessitate the use of construction plant and materials that are a potential hazard to the public. The operators and operatives are trained in the safe use of the plant and materials and the actual works will be signed and guarded to prescribed standards. You are asked, however, to be aware of the potential danger and under no circumstances should you enter or cross the site without assistance from an operative.
