Delays are expected as roadworks return to The Mount next week.

Works at the junction of The Mount and Scarcroft Road will resume from Monday 6 January 2020, and are expected to last for up to 4 weeks.

This follows works in October to improve the junction of The Mount, Dalton Terrace and Albemarle Road, and also the junction of The Mount and Scarcroft Road.

The roadworks took longer than planned, so City of York Council is coming back to complete the final stage to refurbish and replace the traffic signals in January. This is to avoid any disruption on the run up to and during the Christmas period.

City of York Council said:

  • Traffic management will be in place at the junction during the works and motorists are expected to experience some delays while the works are underway.

    They are asked to plan their journey carefully and leave additional time if passing through the area.

    It is not anticipated that there will be any diversions or suspensions to bus services or stops, however, to allow construction to take place the inbound bus lane will be suspended during the works.
    It will be also be necessary to suspend some of the on street parking on the cobbles on The Mount during the works and this will be advertised separately.
