Posted: Tue, 22 Aug 2023 10:37 by Lizzi Bucklow-Holt

National Highways will be carrying out biodiversity work adjacent to the to the A43 northbound at Silverstone and southbound at Whittlebury throughout September.
During this scheme, they will undertake a programme of biodiversity enhancement work involving wildflower grass cutting.
Once completed, these works will increase the species richness of the area, by improving the habitat for pollinating insects and increasing biodiversity.
When will the work take place?
The biodiversity work will be undertaken throughout September 2023 for approximately 10 shifts across September, between Mondays and Fridays between 8pm to 6am.
They will also be carrying out other essential routine maintenance, which includes grass cutting, road sweeping, safety barrier repairs. These works will take place from late August 2023 to mid-September 2023.
Please note that all planned roadworks may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
How will the work affect businesses and residents?
Biodiversity works will be conducted using single lane closures and a couple of nights over this period will require an east bound entry slip road closure from the
Dadford Road/A413. The diversion route will be to proceed along the A413 to the next slip road to rejoin the A43.
National Highways apologise for any inconvenience caused and will do their best to complete the work as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and noise to a minimum. Access for emergency services will remain throughout the works.
