Tadcaster Road - York

City of York Council is warning of severe disruption as it replaces ageing and unreliable traffic lights at the junction of Tadcaster Road and St Helen’s Road from Monday (30 April).

The work is expected to last up to six weeks, and will include temporary lights. The council is advising drivers to allow more time for their journeys or consider alternative routes.

While replacing the traffic lights, the council is making changes to the junction which will improve traffic flows, take advantage of new technology and also prove cheaper and more efficient to run.

Councillor Peter Dew, Executive Member for Transport and Planning, said: “I’d like to thank residents, businesses and visitors for bearing with us whilst we complete the traffic signal renewal programme.

“We don’t take decisions which cause disruption lightly, but we have to make these changes which will improve the junction for years to come.

“We’re doing everything we can to minimise the disruption this causes, and give road users all the information they need to plan their journeys.”

Work is scheduled to take place from 7.30am – 5.30pm, Monday to Friday and from 9am - 3pm on a Saturday. Evening work will be required during certain phases of the work, this will be kept to a minimum to minimise disruption to local residents. More information about the scheme is available from the council website.

Bus services are likely to be delayed, but no diversions are expected.

Work will be suspended from Wednesday 16 May - Friday 18 May and on Saturday 26 May due to race meetings at York Racecourse.
