Road closures for planned resurfacing works

City of York Council will be carrying out resurfacing works on Bishopthorpe Road and Elvington Lane (B1228) requiring road closures this June.

Works will start on Bishopthorpe Road on the evening of Friday 31 May and be complete by Wednesday 19 June, weather permitting.

Bishopthorpe road will be closed to vehicle traffic:

  • 6.30 pm on Friday 31 May to 2:00 am on Saturday 1 June.
  • 8:00 am to 6:00pm on Sunday 2 June.
  • 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on Sunday 16 June.
  • 6:30 pm on Monday 17 June to 2:00 am on Wednesday 19 June.

Pedestrian and cyclist routes will be maintained, where possible, to allow access to properties and homes safely.

Roadworks on Elvington Lane (B1228) will begin on Monday 3 June, and be complete by Tuesday 11 June, weather permitting. These works will require the road to be closed between 7:00 pm to 6.00 am on weekdays. Weekend work is not expected to be necessary.

Due to the lack of a continuous footpath on Elvington Lane, during the road closure, pedestrian access will only be possible by speaking to an on-site staff member at the boundary of the roadworks, to enable safe access to any properties.

All works are being carried out by ‘Lane Rental Services Ltd’, working on behalf of the Council.

Delays are expected, so please plan ahead when making any journeys in the area during the works. Emergency services will always be permitted access during the closures. Residents have already been alerted to the closures.

Bus diversions are expected on these routes on Friday 31 May, and from Monday 17 June to Wednesday 19 June after 6.30pm. These will include the Bishopthorpe-bound Number 11 service, the York-bound Number 11 service and the Number 26 service via Balmoral Terr.
