Addendum to Update Bulletin 6 – 13.5.2020

Since Update 6 was posted on 7th May 2020, we have started works to stabilise a section of embankment to the northbound carriageway, just north of the Caldecote turn in Phase 1, which runs northwards from Tove roundabout (A43) to the Banbury Lane / Butcher's Lane crossroads in Foster's Booth.

These works are planned to continue, with the road being closed to traffic, between 8pm and 6am each night for the rest of this week and over the weekend between 8pm Friday 15th and 6am Monday 18th May 2020.

In an effort to prevent any vehicle accidentally leaving the road and ending up in these excavations during the daytime, we are installing manually operated, three-way, temporary traffic signal control along this particular section of road.

These signals will be in operation each day between 6am and 8pm from today until 8pm this Friday.

Please note that in the event of these works taking longer than planned, due to unforeseen circumstances, these signals may continue to operate into the early part of next week.

I would like to reiterate that every effort will be made to maintain access across the A5 at the Banbury Lane / Butcher's Lane crossroads in Foster's Booth over this coming weekend but, as we shall also be relining existing drainage pipes from access chambers within the crossroads over the same weekend, there may be short periods when that may not be possible. Please also note that all our planned road works may be subject to change due to weather conditions, unforeseen circumstances or restrictions placed on us as a result of the Coronavirus emergency. I apologise for any disruption our works may cause. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
