Upgrading Pelican Crossing on North Moor Road

The pelican crossing on North Moor Road is being upgraded  with the work starting on Monday 17th January. 

This work will include :


  • replacing the outdated traffic signals with new ones that will be more efficient and cheaper to run


  • changing the current pedestrian crossing to puffin style crossing to improve the crossing for all people


  • minor changes to tactile paving at site


  • resurfacing of the footway in the location of the crossing

The work will normally be carried out from 9.00am to 4.00pm.

To enable the work to be carried out there will be temporary traffic controls at the junction of North Moor and North Moor Road.

Additionally there will be a controlled crossing for pedestrians to use to cross the road.

It will be necessary to close footpaths in the works area at certain times during the works and footpath diversion routes will be put in place.

Cleveland Way Sewer Works

Your Lib Dem Cllrs delivered a FOCUS Special to residents of Cleveland Way, Cleveland Terrace, Cleveland View, Pentland Grove, Pennine Close and Mill Hill Drive detailing the sewer works currently being carried out.


We have now been advised that the work will take longer than Yorkshire Water originally envisaged and will now continue until approximately August 27th.


Lime Tree Avenue, New Earswick.

Your Lib Dem Cllrs have been urging the Trust to repair the potholes on Lime Tree Avenue and the approach road to the New Lodge development. We are pleased that the worst potholes to New Lodge approach have been repaired but disappointed that the ones on Lime Tree Avenue were not done at the same time. We therefore asked the Trust again to do this work.


The roads and pavements on Lime Tree Avenue are the responsibility of the Trust not the City Council

Cllrs Urge Housing Trust To Improve Roads

For some time we have been concerned about the condition of Lime Tree Avenue with a number of potholes. Some of these are dangerous for motorists and cyclists.

However, Lime Tree Avenue is the responsibility of Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust not the City Council. We have reported the condition of the road to the Trust. Seemingly the road surface is scheduled for repair by the developers once the New Lodge development is completed. As the New Lodge development will not be finished for some time we have urged the Trust that repairs to Lime Tree should be carried out as soon as possible.

This also applies to Rowan Avenue and its side streets.
