Work is due to start early January 2020 between the A5 Towcester Roundabout and Weedon. The work is scheduled for completion by the end of July 2020.

To keep the works as short as possible and to minimise disruption to the local community, residents, business and road users, Highways England will work:

  • between 8:00pm and 6:00am, Monday to Friday (week night closures)
  • from 8:00pm Friday until 6:00am Monday (full weekend closures on selected weekends)

Please note that all planned works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

The works will include:

  • tree and vegetation clearance
  • repair and replace damaged drains
  • clear and re-profile drainage ditches
  • resurface and re-align the carriageway to remove flat spots
  • renew the footway and damaged kerbs
  • refresh road markings
  • install skid resistance surfacing
  • install road studs and traffic loops

Once completed, all road users will benefit from improved road safety and a smoother carriageway.
