A19 / A63 Barlby Roundabout improvement - Selby
This junction is currently a staggered crossroads on the main route of the A19 between York and Selby.
The staggered junction legs include the A63 on the eastern side of the A19 to Howden and ultimately Hull. On the western side the road links into the centre of the village of Barlby.
The junction was originally built in 1987 by the Highways Agency.
While the Highways Agency were the highway authority for the A19 and A63 they made a commitment to improve the junction as it had an ongoing poor accident record. Following a national program of detrunking the non-core trunk road network these two roads became the County Council's responsibility in April 2009. The County Council is now fulfilling the Highways Agency original commitment by constructing a roundabout at this location.
In a 24-hour period the A19 carries around 17,281 vehicles (Monday, 9 January 2012), with this being split between 8,709 vehicles in a southbound direction and 8,572 vehicles in a northbound direction. The A19 southbound has traffic peaks of 750v/hr at 8am and 901v/hr at 4pm and in the northbound direction has traffic peaks of 979v/hr at 7am and 745v/hr at 5pm.
Similarly in a 24-hour period the A63 carries around 7,446 vehicles (Monday, 9 January 2012), with this being split between 3,663 vehicles in a westbound direction and 3,783 vehicles in a eastbound direction. The A63 westbound has traffic peaks of 444v/hr at 8am and 276v/hr at 5pm and in the eastbound direction has traffic peaks of 263v/hr at 8am and 435v/hr at 5pm.
For details of our proposals please see the following drawings:

Statutory undertaker diversions, BT and Yorkshire Water services are complete.
One of the largest elements of the project is the drainage which is on programme with manholes and catchpits in place and filter drains nearly complete.
There has been a start this week on the ground work sub formation and additional resources, a 3rd gang have been drafted onsite for preparation and installation of the kerbing, so the roundabout / junction will begin to take shape. Spoil from the excavation work is being used to build up the mound for the roundabout
Ducting for the electrical supply for street lighting / illuminated signs is being laid so the columns / sign posts will soon be visible.
The scheme is on schedule for Tarmac to arrive beginning of May to lay the surface so the A19 / A63 junction will be functioning by the end of the road closure period and any remaining work being completed with traffic managed by temporary signals.
