A19 – Work resumed as flood water recedes. NYCC confirm no change to target completion date.
North Yorkshire County Council have announced measures to ensure that the completion date for the A19 can be kept on track despite the recent flooding. The target is still to reopen the road in June and I will continue to push for it to be completed earlier if at all possible.
Work on the reconstruction of the causeway is continuing after a short interruption caused by flooding - the photo above shows work underway earlier today. Work will also be undertaken in parallel on different sections with the laying of the new road surface on the completed northern section of causeway due to commence on 8 March.
Further information provided by NYCC can be found attached below.
I am well aware that the rebuilding of the A19 is a top priority for everybody in Selby district, and I will continue to monitor progress very closely. It is reassuring that the newly completed section of the new causeway has not been damaged by this month’s flooding, and this bodes well for the final scheme.
