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

Since my previous bulletin dated 12th September 2019, we have completed resurfacing works, with the exception of High Friction Surfacing at the Daventry Road (Norton and Whilton junctions, in Phase 4 (from the Heart of The Shires shopping village to Daventry Road (Norton). We have also continued to carry out main drainage works in Phase 6 (from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford Gap). These main drainage works in Phase 6 are being carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am Monday to Friday inclusive and are ongoing.

NB: Please note that, in order to accommodate essential works elsewhere on the road network, we will NOT be carrying out any works on the A5 between Kilsby and Weedon on either Saturday 28th or Sunday 29th September 2019.

We are planning to carry out High Friction Surfacing at the Daventry Road (Norton) / Whilton junction between 8pm Monday 30th September and 6am Tuesday 1st October 2019.

NB: Please note that access across the A5 at the Daventry Road (Norton) and Whilton junctions will NOT be available on that night.

We are 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. This will be 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 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
