A new housing development required a more suitable road junction with the main A59 which involved the relocation of the existing junction by 500m, construction of a new link road section and tie in of the new junction to the existing
A59. Due to the importance of the main A59 Harrogate to York trunk road, the work was carried out under full night- time road closure.
Our scope of work included:
Due to the importance of the A59 Harrogate to York trunk road and due to other project delays, we were allocated 2 nights to complete all the works. Additionally, during the works, we were requested to lay an additional 72t of AC6 asphalt for the footpaths. To meet this deadline, we deployed multiple gangs and 3 pavers simultaneously – our mini, midi and large pavers.
The site was located adjacent to housing, and we worked with the residents to minimise noise during the night. We planned our work to complete the noisiest operations before 11pm (mainly planing operations) and briefed our workforce to work as quietly as possible (e.g., no shouting, no loud radios, no horn beeping etc).
