FOSTER’S BOOTH – EMERGENCY BT CABLE REPAIR 2nd July 2020

FOSTER’S BOOTH – EMERGENCY BT CABLE REPAIR 2nd July 2020

We've been advised that emergency works are required to repair a damaged BT cable, within the carriageway of the A5, at the crossroads of Banbury Lane and Butcher's Lane in Foster's Booth.

These works will be carried out TONIGHT, Thursday 2nd July 2020, during the closure of the A5 to through traffic between Tove roundabout (A43) and Weedon Bec.

Please be assured that every effort will be made to complete these works, particularly the noisier elements, by 11pm. However, as the extent of the works needed to complete the repair is unknown, it is possible that they may continue into the early hours of Friday morning.

Although the crossroads will remain open to local traffic during these works, this traffic will be controlled by the use of temporary 4-way traffic signals. Use of temporary traffic signal control may result in minor delays so please allow extra time for your journey.

Please note that all works may be subject to change due to weather conditions, unforeseen circumstances or the Coronavirus Emergency.

For further information, please contact: Mike Healy Public Liaison Officer – Working on behalf of Highways England Mobile: 07964 114 623 Email: infoA5jackshill@forkers.com
