City of York Council will be carrying out essential roadworks on key roads in York throughout February and March, including:


Hamilton Drive East

Works will take place overnight on Monday 8 February (weather permitting) between 7.30pm and midnight.

In order to carry out the work safely, the road will need to be closed for the duration of the works from, but not including, the junction of Holgate Road up to, but not including, the junction of Barbara Grove. The road will be fully open outside of works times.


Huntington Road

Works will start from Monday 8 March for a period of 2 weeks (weather permitting) between 7.30pm and 5.00am.

The works have been split in to 2 phases to minimise disruption:

Phase 1 works

Road closed from, but not including, the junction of Ramsey Close up to, but not including, the junction of Fossway and Haley’s Terrace. This work is scheduled Monday 8 March until Friday 12 March.

During phase 1, Bus Service 14 will divert via Heworth Green, Dodsworth Avenue and Fossway in both directions.

Phase 2 works

Complete closure of the junction of Huntington Road and Haley’s Terrace and Fossway. Somerset Road will also be closed. This work is scheduled from Monday 15 March until Friday 19 March.

During phase 2 Bus Services 5/5A will divert via Haxby Road and Link Road in both directions (not serving Haley’s Terrace or Huntington Road). Bus Service 14 will divert via Heworth Green, Malton Road, Elmfield Ave, Monkton Road and Byland Avenue in both directions (not serving Huntington Road between Monkgate roundabout and Byland Avenue junction).

In addition to the above, kerbing and drainage works will take place on Monday 1 March for a period of 5 days, working between 9.15am and 4.00pm. These works will be carried out under local traffic management, will not affect access and egress and the road will be open as normal. Parking will be suspended in sections to enable us to carry out the works.


Haxby Road

Works will start from Monday 22 February for a period of 5 nights (weather permitting) between 7.30pm and 5.00am.

In order to carry out the work safely, the use of a full road closure from, but not including, the junction of Walpole Street up to, and including, the junction of Rose Street will be necessary whilst works are taking place.

The bollards at Fountayne Street and Vyner Street will be removed during the hours of works to allow residents access and egress via Wigginton Road.

Bus Services 1, 5 and 5A will divert via Lord Mayor’s Walk, Monkgate and Huntington Road.

In addition to the above, kerbing and drainage works will take place from 15 February for a period of 5 days, working between 9.15am and 4.00pm.

During all of the above schemes, road closures may be necessary 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.

If on-street parking is suspended residents have been notified in advance. Parking may be suspected during the hours of the works for the full duration, but specific access requirements can be arranged by speaking to the site Traffic Management Operatives, who will coordinate with residents and business requirements around the ongoing work operations.

The contractor will be operating under social distancing guidance wherever possible due to the current COVID-19 restrictions.

Emergency services will be permitted through the works at all times. However, please note that 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 at all times try to keep any disruption to a minimum.
