Motorists be warned: one of York’s busiest junctions is closed for the next four nights.

The A64 / A19 Fulford interchange will be resurfaced over four consecutive nights from Tuesday to Friday (September 1-4), with full road closures between 8pm and 6am.

All traffic diversions will be signed.

The diversions

North and south traffic on the A19
Will be able to continue through the A64 junction using a single lane and working with traffic light control.

Southbound (towards Selby) A19 traffic wishing to travel east on the A64
Will not be affected as the A64 slip road will continue to be open.

Southbound (towards Selby) A19 traffic wishing to travel west on the A64
Will need to be diverted initially eastbound on the A64 via Grimston Bar to enable them to return westbound.

Northbound (towards York) A19 traffic wishing to travel both east and west on the A64
Traffic from the south (Selby) wishing to travel on the A64 (in either direction) will be diverted via the inner ring road and Hull Road A1079.

A64 traffic wishing to use the A19
No direct access to the A19 at the A64/A19 junction. Traffic will be diverted via either Tadcaster Road A1036 or Hull Road A1079 and the inner ring.

A64 East-west traffic
East to west traffic on the A64 will not be affected.

Designer Outlet and Park&Ride
Works will be outside of the Designer Outlet’s opening times, so there will be minimum impact on access to and from the shopping centre.

P&R services will not be affected.

Patrons and staff leaving the Designer Outlet after 8pm will need to exit via Naburn Lane as St Nicholas Avenue will be closed after this time.

Buses
Two routes will be slightly affected, including the 415 service timetabled to leave the Designer Outlet at 9.15pm to York and 9.50pm to Selby.

Passengers will need to walk to the stops on A19 Selby Road or A19 near Lingcroft Lane (Persimmon).

Pinch Point scheme

Motorists travelling during the hours of the works should expect delays and are advised to plan their journey accordingly.

Resurfacing the interchange supports the £2 million Department for Transport funded Pinch Point scheme.

A council spokeswoman said:

The £2 million funding contributes towards the cost of the £4.7m overall project in this area which will help towards supporting local transport schemes that tackle congestion and support growth.
