Proposed Resurfacing Of B1228 between A1079 East of York and Howden

Paul has asked me to put this letter on the webiste.
Dear Resident,
Subject: Proposed Resurfacing of the B1228 between the A1079 East of York and Howden
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to reconstruct approximately 8 miles of the B1228 which links the A1079 east of York to the town of Howden.  Work will be taking place at two separate sites. Site one is located on a 4 mile section of carriageway between Rossmoor Lodge Junction and Ellerton Common Junction and Site two is located on a 4 mile section of carriageway between the A163 junction at Bubwith and the junction near Spaldington approximately 1 mile north of Howden railway station. Please find attached a copy of the site limits and phasing of the works for your information.
The majority of the work will consist of a process of recycling the existing carriageway pavement followed by a 60mm deep tarmac overlay and road markings. Not only does this recycling process reduce the environmental impact of the work it will also reduce cost and the duration of the disruption.
Work at both sites is programmed to commence on Monday 8th July for five weeks (Weather permitting) and the B1228 will be closed to through traffic at the two sites for the duration of the works. Due to the restricted width of the carriageway and to meet current safety requirements, access through the two sites will only be permitted to vehicles needing access within the limits of the reconstruction works. A signed traffic diversion will be in place for through traffic and deliveries via A1079 Dunnington - Shiptonthorpe Roundabout - A614 - Holme-on-Spalding-Moor - Howden, alternatively traffic can divert to the west via A64 York - A19 - A63 Howden. Access will also be maintained for emergency services, refuse collection, mobile library, mobile optician and postal services. Bus services will not be affected although some school buses will be disrupted, details of the revised services will be released by the relevant school bus companies.
A temporary 7.5T weight restrictions will be enforced on the surrounding minor road network in order to avoid damage to carriageways and verges in the locality which are unsuitable for HGV use, HGV's are requested re-route via the "A" and "B" road network unless absolutely necessary.
Whist some inconvenience will be unavoidable on works of this nature the road closure duration is being kept to a minimum by constructing the two sites simultaneously; allowing the contractor to progress the works efficiently and reduce both costs and construction time. It should be noted that compensation will not be available for anyone financially affected by the works.
Should you have any questions or require further information please contact me on 01482 395644 or Email: - ). In my absence you may wish to contact Mark Waterson (Principal Engineer) on 01482 395637. Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd has been appointed main contractor to undertake the work on behalf of The East Riding of Yorkshire Council and may be contact Site Supervisor - Carl Huckle on 07588 532858 regarding any site related matters. Please see the reverse side of this letter from the recycling contractors notice and advice.
Yours faithfully,

James Sissons
Assistant Principal Engineer


Dear Resident,

Stabilised Pavements have been appointed by your local authority to carry out essential repairs to the road in front of your property. This work will be carried out over the next couple of weeks, weather permitting. Understandably, you will have some questions, and we hope this letter will answer these.
What work is being carried out ?
The road is to be RECYCLED. In this process damaged layers of the road are pulverised ( Broken up ), and then mixed with either Bitumen or Cement (Binder) and then re-laid. The advantage of Recycling when compared to other methods is that the work can be completed quickly with minimal disruption.
Additionally, scarce environmental resources will be saved by recycling the existing road.
What is involved ?
Initially, a traffic control system will be set up in the area. (Road Closure) The road to be treated will then be pulverised to a predetermined depth using specialist machinery.
Once completed, this material is mixed with the appropriate grades of binder, reprofiled and then compacted to exacting standards. A temporary surface of emulsion with a grit is left as a temporary running sure, the road can now be used.
Warning signs may be left in place for several days after the treatment. If so please observe them and help us to keep this a safe site and keep the inconvenience to a minimum.
Due to the type of plant we have to use to meet current specifications, you may experience some vibration. For this reason, it is advisable to make sure that any fragile items of intrinsic or sentimental value that may be free-standing on shelves, tables or other places are removed or secured so as not to cause any damage.
What precautions should be taken ?
Any inconvenience caused by the operation will last only a couple of days. However, in order to minimise this inconvenience and for your own safety, we should be grateful if you would take the following precautions while our team is in the area:
1.        Please do not park your car on that part of the road which is to treated – this will allow the work to be carried out without delay. If you need help in getting in or out of your property, please ask the Stabilised Pavements employee for assistance.

2.        If you have no off road parking facilities and will be out when the work is to be undertaken, we would be grateful if the keys could be left with a neighbour.

3.        Please keep to the indicated speed limits until signs are removed, if in doubt whilst driving through the works always restrict your speed to 10 MPH, and please avoid driving through any of the binders. (Cement or Bitumen )

4.        It is a common law duty for all residents to protect their property. Before getting into your car or entering your home, please check that you and your family do not have any binders ( Cement or Bitumen ) on your shoes. If you have any of the binders on your shoes please remove them before entering the property.

5.        If in spite of these precautions, you get any of the binders ( Cement or Bitumen ) on your clothes or shoes, it can be removed with a proprietary cleaner.

6.        In the case of business premises, we are obliged to maintain access, but as there are no practical ways in which we can cover the treated surfaces and cannot prevent people from walking on them, we suggest you place a temporary covering inside your premises.
Thank you for your co-operation in helping us to carry out this necessary work. Should you have any queries, please contact either the Site Supervisor Jason Twinn 07709 470736 or Gerry Howe at Stabilised Pavements Limited at the above address.
