A5 KILSBY TO WEEDON Multi-Disciplinary Project - Update Bulletin 16 – 31.10.2019

Please note that, because of forecasted heavy rainfall, we will NOT be carrying out the resurfacing works in Phase 6, from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford planned for this weekend.

However, we will be carrying out main drainage works in Phase 6 between 8pm Friday 1st and 6am Saturday 2nd November 2019. This means that the A5 will remain open between Kilsby and Weedon from 6am Saturday 2nd to 8pm Monday 4th November 2019.

Between 8pm and 6am each night, from Monday 4th November to Friday 8th November inclusive and Monday 11th November 2019, we will be carrying out kerbing works at the B5385 Watford / Welton junction and main drainage works in Phase 7, from B5385 Watford to A361 Kilsby roundabout. The kerbing works will require the closure of the Welton / Ashby St. Ledgers road at the junction but access will be maintained to Watford.

Please note that between 8pm Tuesday 5th and 6am Wednesday 6th November 2019, we are planning to carry out High Friction Surfacing using temporary 2-way traffic signal control in Phase 5, between Daventry Road (Norton) and B4036 Long Buckby.

Please also note that as currently, there are no works planned on the A5 between 6am Saturday 9th and 8pm Monday 11th November 2019, the road will be open to through traffic between Kilsby and Weedon.

Following this second weather related postponement of resurfacing works in Phase 6, from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford, we are now planning to carry out these works over two weekends later in November 2019:

Between 8pm Friday 15th and 6am Monday 18th November 2019 and between 8pm Friday 22nd and 6am Monday 25th November 2019.

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

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
