A171 Guisborough Bypass

The Jointline Bradford depot has completed a contract on the A171 Guisborough bypass for Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council. The 2.6km scheme included centre line alterations, the removal and replacement of cat’s eyes and installation of high friction surfacing on the approaches to 2 roundabouts at either end. The project began in early May and was completed over 5-night shifts with road closures and traffic diversions managed by Roadway UK Traffic Management Ltd.

The existing lining and 403m2 of high friction surfacing was planed by East Coast Surfacing in preparation for the Jointline road marking crew who were supervised by Darren Reynolds. The 10-man crew installed urban nearside hatchings along full length of the scheme with a single 150mm flat line continuous edge. The 200mm offside hatch was complemented with Roadcraft single white uni-directional road studs. Give way markings were installed on both roundabouts, with 6m lane directional markings to one roundabout. An adjacent road was finished with rural diverge hatchings and give way markings. Further give way triangles and a cycle logo were installed to a cycle path route that crossed the carriageway. The total area of high friction surfacing at either end of the carriageway was 724m2   

Jonathan Warriss, Operations Manager, at Bradford said: “The A171 Guisborough bypass scheme is just one of many projects that we have successfully completed for Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council. The crew on site worked above and beyond as a team to ensure the project specification and quality was met, it’s good to know that the work completed has improved the safety of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians that use the route.”
