The next stage of York’s overhaul of its traffic lights is about to start – and motorists and bus users should expect delays.
Work will take place from 9.30am-4pm, Monday to Friday. To allow work to take place safely temporary signals will be in operation during the works which may lead to some delays for motorists.
Heworth Road / Melrosegate junction
Mon Jul 24-Wed Aug 23

The work will include a full overhaul of the traffic signal equipment, including changes to the pedestrian crossing equipment to facilitate puffin-style near side red and green man displays.
The existing pedestrian crossing will also be realigned following feedback.
Delays and diversions
A council spokesman said there is bound to be traffic disruption.
However buses that normally use this street will be diverted and motorists should expect some delays and plan their journey accordingly.
The five year traffic signal asset renewal programme was given the green light by the councillor responsible for transport and planning in November 2015 at a public meeting.
The total replacement programme will cost £2.62m over six years and will be funded through the capital programme budget and the existing Local Transport Plan budget.
