Thirsk Auction Mart

For this project, Schofield Contracting constructed a new entrance to serve the relocated Thirsk auction mart. The works included the remodelling of the highway on the existing A19 between York and Thirsk by decreasing the dual carriageway to a single carriageway, and the construction of new traffic islands. All staff involved in the live carriageway working were accredited in line with NRSWA 1998 (New Roads and Street Works Act) to ensure that all necessary traffic management and safety procedures were employed. Despite the challenges of the live environment and the management of the traffic on this very busy road, the project was completed on time.
