Drain cleaning and survey work to start on Tadcaster Road

City of York Council will be undertaking highway drainage cleaning and survey work from Monday 1 March for approximately five weeks. This work forms part of planned highway maintenance improvement works programme on Tadcaster Road from Blossom Street to the junction with the A64.

The works will take place in several phases with the aim being to cause minimal disruption to road users. The table below shows the areas that will be covered in the first five weeks.


Phase Location Week
1 Copmanthorpe to A64 Junction Start 3pm - Finish 11pm 1
2 A64 Junction Start 7pm - Finish 7am 1
3 A64 to Park and Ride Start 7pm - Finish 7am 2
4 Sim Balk Lane Junction Start 7pm - Finish 7am 3
5 Sim Balk Lane to Askham Bar Roundabout Start 3pm - Finish 11pm 3
6 Askham Bar Roundabout Start 6pm - Finish 11pm 4 & 5

In March the council will discuss and agree a plan for work to be undertaken on the section from the Askham Bar roundabout to Nunnery Lane. 

The works will consist of cleaning using high-pressure water machines and survey works using remote control CCTV cameras. The works will be largely non-intrusive and will not involve any road or footpath excavation. There is however the potential for some minor disruption for road users and local residents. The council has therefore been working closely with its supply chain partners to ensure that any works requiring traffic management (such as lane closures) operate in a way that causes minimum disruption.
