Roadworks planned on the junction of two roads in York city centre
City of York Council is carrying out resurfacing works at the junction of Micklegate and Skeldergate starting from Monday 26 July for a period of three nights between 7.30pm – 5am.
The works will be carried out using lane closures and temporary lights with the junction remaining open.
North Street and Skeldergate junctions will be closed as follows:
- Monday 26 July – Skeldergate junction closed (North Street junction will be open)
- Tuesday 27 July – North Street junction closed (Skeldergate junction will be open)
- Wednesday 28 July – Skeldergate junction closed from 7.30pm – 11am (North St will remain open). Traffic management will then be flipped over and North Street junction will be closed from 11pm – 5am (Skeldergate will be open whilst North Street is closed).
Whilst North Street junction is closed Tanner Row will operate a two-way traffic system which will be managed by traffic management operatives.
This is to ensure that adequate health and safety is maintained for both local residents, the travelling public and the contractor. Site staff will be on hand to advise and assist residents about any access restrictions once the works are ongoing.
During the closure of Skeldergate, service 3 will divert via Nunnery Lane and Bishopgate Street.
Service X46 will divert via Rougier Street and Rail Station, turning via Nunnery Lane and Prices Lane.
Emergency services will be permitted through the works at all times. However cyclists will be required to dismount and push their bikes along the footways.
As with any construction work, there is likely to be a certain amount of disruption and inconvenience to the public. However, the contractor will, they say, at all times try to keep any disruption to a minimum.
