UPDATE: Road closures for planned resurfacing works

There have been changes to the times of resurfacing works on Bishopthorpe Road that will require road closures this June.

Due to the poor condition of the underlying carriageway, we will be closing Bishopthorpe Road to vehicle traffic on Thursday 6 June and Friday 7 June (6.30pm-Midnight). This will be instead of the closures originally planned on the 16-19 June.

We apologise for any inconvenience this unexpected change to the scheduled roadworks may cause; residents have been informed.

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

Roadworks on Elvington Lane (B1228) continue as planned until Tuesday 11 June (7pm-6am), weather permitting.

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.

Bus diversions are expected on after 6.30pm. These will include the York-bound Number 11 service via Knavesmire Road and the Number 26 service via Balmoral Terr.
