Update Bulletin 11 – 29.8.2019

As you are no doubt aware, the recent severe weather resulted in the postponement of resurfacing works, planned for the weekend of Friday 16th to Monday 19th August 2019 in Phase 3 of our essential maintenance scheme.

As a result of this postponement and the embargo on our works over the Summer Bank Holiday, weekend, resurfacing works in Phase 3 (from the Flore roundabout to the Heart of The Shires shopping village) are now planned to continue as follows:

1. Friday 30th August – Monday 2nd September – northwards from The Dial House to just north of Ivy House Farm.

2. Friday 6th – Monday 9th September – northwards from just north of Ivy House Farm to Norton Lane.

Weekend resurfacing works are being carried out between 8pm Friday nights and 6am Monday mornings. Following completion of resurfacing works in Phase 3 we will continue into Phase 4 (from the Heart of The Shires shopping village to Daventry Road (Norton). Information on dates and phasing of resurfacing works in Phase 4 will be made available nearer the time.

Currently, main drainage works are being carried out in Phase 5 (from Daventry Road (Norton) to B4036 Long Buckby) and Phase 6 (from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford Gap).

All main drainage works are being carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am Monday to Friday inclusive and the road will be closed to traffic between these times.

When the A5 is closed during our works in Phases 3, 5 and 6, traffic is being diverted as shown on the diversion route drawing titled TTRO PLAN – PHASES 3 TO 7 TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT, available on the website www.highwaysengland.co.uk.

Please note that all our planned road works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Local businesses will be open as usual during these essential works so please use your local shops, bars and restaurants and ask others to do the same. I'm sure that your local business community would appreciate it.

I apologise for any disruption our works may cause. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.

Unfortunately, there have been incidences of unauthorised vehicles being driven into our working areas. These irresponsible drivers put themselves and our workforce at risk of serious injury or death. As a result of these incursions we have employed a Safety Camera vehicle which will record any such incidences and report the offender to the Police
