Client: North Yorkshire Council
This project involved the construction of a roundabout in place of a staggered cross roads at the A19/A63 junction in Barlby, North Yorkshire. The A19 carries over 33,000 vehicles at this location every day and the roundabout was designed to improve safety for right turners and also decrease speeds on the A19 to aid motorists coming from the A63.
The original programme for the project was 22 weeks – but by imposing a full road closure, and working seven days a week, the team managed to complete the project in 10 weeks, thus greatly reducing the impact of the project on the local community.
Without a closure construction could have taken as long as 36 weeks.
