A5 KILSBY TO WEEDON Multi-Disciplinary Project Update Bulletin 13 – 26.9.2019

Posted: Mon, 30 Sep 2019 15:46 by Susan Halkett

*** STOP PRESS ***

Since Update Bulletin 13 was sent to you last Thursday, we have received a forecast of heavy rain later today and tomorrow and as a direct result, we will NOT be carrying out High Friction Surfacing at the Daventry Road (Norton) / Whilton junction tonight, so the junction will remain open to traffic.

We plan to return to this area on either Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th or Thursday 10th October. I can confirm the exact date with you early next week. More »

As drainage is not a rain sensitive activity, we will be carrying out drainage works in Phase 6 (from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford Gap) from 8pm tonight until 6am tomorrow morning instead and it is envisaged that these drainage works will continue overnight from 8pm to 6am throughout this week.

Please note that we are still planning to carry out resurfacing works in Phase 5 (from Daventry Road (Norton) to B4036 Long Buckby) between 8pm Friday 4th and 6am Monday 7th October 2019 followed by the application of High Friction Surfacing at the B4036 Long Buckby junction over two nights between 8pm Tuesday 8th and 6am Wednesday 9th and 8pm Wednesday 9th and 6am Thursday 10th October 2019.

NB: Please note that access across the A5 at the B4036 Long Buckby junction will NOT be available during both resurfacing works and the application of High Friction Surfacing.

Please accept my apology for this alteration to our programme.
