A5 Overnight Roadworks A43 to Weedon

A5 Overnight Roadworks A43 to Weedon

Update 9 Jan 20


Update Bulletin 1 – 9.1.2020

As you may be aware, Highways England will be carrying out essential maintenance works to the A5 between Tove roundabout (A43) and Weedon until the end of July 2020.

These works are programmed to commence on Monday 13th January 2020.

The initial works to Phase 1 (from Tove roundabout (A43) to the Banbury Lane / Butcher's Lane crossroads, Foster's Booth) includes vegetation clearance before bird nesting season commences and surveys of existing drainage pipelines.

These particular works will be carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am Mondays to Fridays inclusive and are programmed to take approximately two weeks.

Please note that the A5, between Tove roundabout (A43) and Weedon, will remain open as usual when we are not working and winter maintenance work, i.e. gritting of the road, will be carried out as normal.

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

Local businesses will be open as usual during these essential works so please continue to use these and ask others to do the same. I'm sure that your local business community would appreciate it.

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