A64 – Evening and Overnight Closures from 1st November to 4th December 2021

A64 Barr Lane to Claxton carriageway surfacing – essential maintenance work

Find below text from a further email from Hazel Birdsall, Communications Manager, A-one+ on behalf of National Highways regarding overnight A64 closures affecting Flaxton residents.

A-one+ working on behalf of National Highways (formally Highways England) is carrying out surfacing work on the A64 Barr Lane to Claxton to provide drivers with smoother and safer journeys.

What’s happening and when?

We’re carrying out essential maintenance work on the A64 Barr Lane to Claxton and part of Scotchman Lane. The work includes resurfacing the carriageway, renewing the high-friction surfacing and installing new road markings and studs.

We plan to start work on Monday 1 November and aim to complete by Friday 4 December.  We cannot complete this work in bad weather. In the event of any delays, we will keep customers and residents updated about changes on our website, through social media and through signs on the network.

Closures and restrictions

To carry out this work safely we will close the A64 in both directions between Barr Lane and Claxton overnight from 8pm to 6am, Monday to Friday.  A fully signed diversion will be in place for A64 traffic which has been agreed in advance with the police and local authority. The diversion route has been planned to consider the needs of local communities and is of a similar standard to the A64. Consequently, it will extend journey times considerably – we advise customers to allow more time and plan their journeys in advance.

Access to residential and commercial properties located within the closed section of road will always be maintained. We do however ask these people to plan their journeys to avoid the closures wherever possible. It is also important to follow the instructions of our site staff to ensure your and our workforce’s safety. If you live outside the closure, you will not be able to use the A64 between the closure points and we therefore request that you use alternative routes.

Extra information

We are aware that York City Council is carrying out work on Towthorpe Moor Lane and we have liaised with the council (York City) to minimise disruption to road users.

Some of the work we will carry out will be noisy. We will try and carry out the noisiest part of the work before 11pm where we can, but there will be noise overnight. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and aim to complete the work as soon as we can to minimise any disruption.
