A5 Roadworks Update 15th October 2018

Update from Highways England:

"Good afternoon

I have to advise you that the wet weather yesterday and today has prevented us from laying asphalt, HFS and road markings to Phases 2b (part) and 2c as programmed.

This work will now be carried out between Thursday 18th October and Saturday 20th October 2018 and preparations made for the road to be re-opened by 7am Sunday morning.

Access will then be available to Phases 2a, b and c from both the Brackley Road / Northampton Road junction and Richmond Road, although Traffic Management will still be in place to prevent HGVs entering the High Street. The blue off-street parking permits will no longer be required.

Drainage works are continuing in Phase 3 under temporary three way traffic signal control between Silverstone Brook Bridge and Vernon Road.

Please note that Towcester is still open for business as usual during these works and the public car parks are accessible so please use your local shops, bars and restaurants and ask others to do the same.

I apologise for the disruption our works may cause. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.

NB: Please note that all our planned road works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

To help us identify and make improvements to our responses, I would be very grateful if you could please take our feedback survey by clicking here

Kind regards
