A684 Safer Roads FUND – A684, Akebar Drainage Survey Works – A684 Closure

The Town Council has been notified as below.  A map of the diversion can be found here: 70069269-LOCATION PLAN

This letter is to inform you that North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking highway drainage investigation works on the A684 Conyers Lane, between the junctions with Chapel Lane, Akebar to Leyburn Road, Constable Burton, please see attached plan for detail.  This work is programmed to take place on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd February.  Please note that to complete this work it will be necessary to close the A684 in both directions. A fully signed diversion route will be in place.

The works will be carried out between 09.30 and 15.00 and the road closure will be in place between these times only.  This may inevitably delay vehicular travel but we will endeavour to minimise the duration of the road closure where possible.

Please note, this work is part of an extensive programme and therefore it is possible that some adjustment to this start date or the duration of the works may be necessary should unforeseen circumstances such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise.

We request your assistance in the following ways: –

  • Please contact the Council Customer Service Centre, 01609 780780, to advise of any special access needs you may require during the work period.
  • Cooperate and comply with any instructions issued by site staff and the Traffic Safety & Control Officer and take extra care whilst near the works area.

Tree Work on A6108 Range Road to Catterick Garrison and B6270 Reeth Road

The Town Council has received the below which explains why the work is being undertaken and also details of road closures that may affect your journey times.

Notice of work to remove trees infected with Ash Dieback disease on Catterick Training Area

As a valued neighbour, we are writing to inform you that the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), its industry partner, Landmarc Support Services, and its contractor KWR Plant Hire Ltd, will shortly be commencing important work on Catterick Training Area to remove around 2,000 trees that have been identified as being infected with Ash Dieback disease. Many of the affected trees border the A6108 and B6270 along the Swale Corridor between Richmond and Reeth, which means that the work will involve a number of road closures to ensure trees can be removed safely and that road users and the local workforce are protected.

Details of the closures

The closures, which have been discussed and agreed with North Yorkshire County Council, will take place from 7:00am until 6:00pm on weekdays only from Monday 24 January. The work is expected to take approximately six weeks, though some follow-up felling will be required next winter.

The first stage will see the closure of the A6108 for felling which will last until Friday 28 January. There will then be a week’s break followed by the start of closures and felling along the B6270 from the 7 February. This second phase is expected to be completed in mid-March. Diversions will be in place and clearly signed but work will be temporarily halted to allow buses and emergency vehicles to continue along the road on their usual routes to avoid delays.

Details of specific closures as they occur will be available on www.gov.uk or on the North Yorkshire County Council website at www.northyorks.gov.uk/roadworks-road-closures-and-diversions.

About Ash Dieback disease

Ash Dieback is a serious fungal disease of ash trees. There is no cure or treatment for the disease and over time infected trees will weaken, causing branches to fall and trees to eventually collapse and die.

Infection can lead to the death of young trees in just two to three years and of mature trees within three to five years. This presents a significant health and safety risk, especially alongside roads and public rights of way. Whilst it is unfortunate that these trees must be felled, it is the only option to protect the public and other estate users.

Regenerating the woodlands

It is intended that the trees will be replaced through natural regeneration, however, if this does not succeed, we may carry out some replanting with native broadleaves, similar to those already on site.

We apologise for any inconvenience these essential works may cause and thank you for your patience. We would also appreciate any help you can give to share this information with local residents.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Landmarc’s National Service Centre by emailing nsc@landmarc.mod.uk, calling 0800 022 3334 or search for Ash Dieback on the Ministry of Defence Estate on www.gov.uk.

Yours faithfully

Road Gritting – North Yorkshire Action Plan and Priorities

The below is copied from the NYCC website here https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/road-gritting.

With Winter coming, you may wish to save this link to look up which roads will be gritted.

See when roads are gritted and view our gritting routes.

Between 1 October and 30 April we keep North Yorkshire’s roads moving during periods of extreme weather.

Motorways and trunk roads such as the A1, A1(M), A66, A66(M), A64, A168 (Dishforth to Thirsk) and A19 (Thirsk to Crathorne) are the responsibility of Highways England.

When we will grit the roads

Our gritting crews are on call 24 hours a day between October and April. They will treat North Yorkshire roads whenever needed. Remember gritting does not guarantee an ice free surface. Traffic needs to drive over a gritted road in order to grind the salt and activate it. Salt alone does not melt snow and ice. We monitor conditions throughout the day and night and adjust our gritting plans an needed.

Our gritting plans for overnight on the 22 to 23 November are:

Area Gritting plans
Richmondshire Gritting all priority 1 routes.
Hambleton Gritting all priority 1 routes.
Scarborough Gritting all priority 1 routes.
Ryedale Gritting all priority 1 routes.
Craven Gritting all priority 1 and 2 routes.
Harrogate Gritting all priority 1 routes.
Selby Gritting all priority 1 routes.

We grit our roads in the order below, as resources allow, based on traffic flows and the best use of our gritters.

Priority Type of road Gritted by
purple.png 1 Connects or passes through towns 7am
green.png 2 Access to local communities 10am
Unmarked Housing estates and country lanes Only gritted if conditions last over 72 hours and resources allow

Most scheduled buses and three quarters of school buses run on gritted routes. We cannot grit all our roads due to the time and cost involved.

We update Twitter when we plan to grit, subject to resources. You can follow us @northyorkscc.

Live weather cameras

We have weather stations across the county which record photos, monitor humidity, road temperature, air temperature and wind speed.

View our roadside cameras

When we will grit footpaths and footways

Busy shopping areas and main pedestrian footways will be treated before 9am in severe weather. We will not treat footways following normal overnight frosty conditions.

After snowfall and icy conditions, busy shopping streets and main pedestrian footways will be cleared first. Remaining footways and cycleways will be treated in priority order as resources allow.

Safer Roads Fund – A684 Flood Warning System – Possible delays between Bainbridge and Wensley from 28 June for 3 Months

The Town Council has received details as set out below and on the attached A684 Flood Warning Scheme Location Plan

As part of the Safer Roads Fund Initiative North Yorkshire County Council will be implementing a scheme on the A684 between Bainbridge and Wensley to address the road safety issue that exists on this stretch of road as a result of frequent flooding from the River Ure. The aim of this scheme is to reduce incidents resulting from the use of a road when flooded, by providing warning of the presence of flooding in real time.

The system involves the installation of flood sensors in chambers below ground, these will be placed at strategic locations along the A684. These sensors will detect flooding on the road and will then turn on message signs which will indicate that the road is closed due to flooding.

The installation works for the new signs and associated equipment is planned to commence from the 28th June 2021 and will take approximately 3 months to complete. During the installation work the A684 will be kept open to traffic at all times.

Please note that there may be occasions, where necessary for the safety or the work force and travelling public, when temporary traffic signals will be required. Traffic management is only expected to be required for short durations (up to 1 week) at each of the locations indicated on the attached plan. The works will be carried out between 0730hrs and 1730hrs. This may inevitably lead to some minor delays for vehicular travel, but our contractor will endeavour to reduce delay times during the working period.

We request your assistance in the following ways: –

 Please contact the Customer Resolution Centre on 01609 780780 to identify any special access needs you may have during the work period;

 Cooperate and comply with any instructions issued by site staff and please take extra care whilst near the works area.

Please see attached a copy of the plan showing each of the locations that the detectors and signs are to be installed.
Following installation, the equipment will be monitored, to ensure it is operating as intended and that the signs are activated when flooding poses a risk to safe passage of vehicles on the A684.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any disruption that these works may cause.

MIDDLEHAM BRIDGE MAINTENANCE WORKS – total closure 5th July for up to 3 days

Council has been informed of the following MIDDLEHAM BRIDGE MAINTENANCE WORKS and the message is in full below.

The diversion map is here NOTIFICATION Middleham Repointing (002)

This letter is to inform you that the North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking essential highway maintenance at Middleham Bridge. The work will entail repointing areas of the northwest turret where excess movement at the interface between the parapet and the turret has caused the mortar to crack.

The works are currently programmed to commence on 5th July and may last for up to 3 days. Every effort will be made to complete the works as quickly as possible in order to minimise disruption. We appreciate that the diversion route is rather large, unfortunately, due to the nature of this bridge and surrounding roads, there is no other viable option, as we cannot divert traffic down a class of roads lower than the one closed.

The works will be carried out between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm, however, we will be unable to open the bridge out of hours due to the narrow width. Pedestrian access will not be permitted. We request your assistance in the following ways: –

Please contact the Customer Resolution Centre on 01609 780780 to identify any special access needs you may have during the work period

Please co-operate and comply with any instructions issued by the traffic management operatives and take extra care whilst within the works area.
