Major Roadworks in Towcester

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 13:43 by Parish Clerk

We would like to inform you of roadworks on the A5 through Towcester set to be carried out by Highways England (HE).

The works will start at the end of July, are expected to last for around four months and there will be periods in which sections of the A5 will be closed in both directions for 24 hours. More »

HE have a dedicated Public Liaison Officer (details below) who has been talking to businesses and residents in the town, but we thought it important to make sure parish councillors across the district were also informed.

Please could you include this letter in your regular meetings and, if possible, post a notice on the village notice board and include in the village's next online newsletter.

Access to The Forum, and the short and long stay car parks along Northampton Road, will be maintained but anyone travelling to The Forum should allow for extra travel time.

The works include the reinstatement of a trench over a gas main that runs down the centre of the A5, alongside repairs to damaged drains and kerbs, the resurfacing of footways and the carriageway, and a refresh of road markings.

The work will be carried out in phases starting at the bridge over the River Tove near Aldi and Tesco, then will make its way south through the town centre, finishing near Marlow Road.

Through traffic heading south along the A5 will be diverted south at the Tove roundabout along A43 to the A413 Whittlebury turning, then east at Cow Pastures and back on to the A5.

Northbound traffic will be diverted north at the Stony Stratford roundabout along the A508 into Northampton and on to the M1 or Mereway Ring Road, then south back towards Towester via the A43.

It should be noted that gaps in the central reservation along the A43 will also be closed for safety reasons.

The timing of the closures on the A5 will vary and motorists should pay close attention to any signage.

One-way restrictions along Park Street, Browns Yard, Chantry Lane and Moat Lane in Towcester will be lifted temporarily when needed to allow access for residents and businesses.

For more information contact Mike Healy, Public Liaison Officer (PLO) who can be reached via 07964 114623 or infoA5towcesterhighstreet@forkers.com.

Kind regards
