Road Works - London Road - signal crossing update Monday 8th to Friday 27th February 2021
Northamptonshire Highways have advised us that they will be upgrading and modernising the existing pedestrian signal crossing on London Road near the junction of Hyde Road.
There will be 2 way traffic signals operating between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday from Monday 8th February to Friday 27th February (weather dependent) and one night closure on Thursday 11th February 2021.
COVID-19 message from Northamptonshire County Council. Our Government identified key workers are carrying out essential highway works for us, whilst maintaining social distancing and following all COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our workforce and residents.
Northamptonshire Highways, its contractors and suppliers are identified as key workers as defined by the government: "those who will keep the air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the Covid-19 response including those in supply chains", and that these works have been defined as essential works by the government.
Their priority is to keep the highway network open and safe. They are also working to keep on programme with highway works to improve communities and repair roads.
They would like to assure you that all of their site teams have been extensively briefed on all Government Guidance regarding social distancing, increased cleanliness, and working within communities. The Government has also permitted that workers, where necessary, may be in groups of more than two to undertake works and that, whilst the 2-meter physical distancing rule should always try and be achieved, this would not always be practicable.
To eliminate the need to knock on doors and help them with their work, please could you move any vehicles parked within this section of the road. Thank you for your understanding, patience and co-operation.
