A5 Roadworks Update 5th October 2018

Update from Highways England:

"As you will be aware we are currently working in phase 2b and 2c of our maintenance work to the A5 Towcester High Street and a road closure is currently in place from the Northampton / Brackley Road junction down to Richmond Road.

Unfortunately the concrete we have placed in this phase has not reached the required strength in a pre-set number of days to enable it to be trafficked so we have taken the decision to remove this concrete straightaway and replace it with a higher strength concrete mix design to ensure the durability and longevity of the carriageway reconstruction works.

To try and minimise the delay we will still be working in Phase 3 under temporary traffic lights and we intend to increase the workforce to complete this replacement work whilst our working areas in phase 3 will be minimized to reduce disruption to local residents and businesses.

We appreciate your patience at this time however if you have any queries on the above please contact our Public Relations Office Mike Healy on 07964 114 623"
