Dear Sir or Madam,

NOTIFICATION OF ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE WORKS ON THE A43: BETWEEN TOWCESTER ROUNDABOUT (SOUTHBOUND) AND NORTHAMPTON ROAD ROUNDABOUT (BRACKLEY)

I am writing to let you know that we will be carrying out essential maintenance work to the A43 Southbound carriageway between the Towcester roundabout and the Northampton Road roundabout at Brackley. More »

During this comprehensive scheme of work, we will repair and replace damaged drains, resurface the carriageway, renew any damaged kerbs, refresh road markings, install road studs and vegetation clearance works.

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

When will the work take place?

We are planning to start work from the 25th July 2022 for approximately three months.

To keep our programme for these works as short as possible and to minimise disruption to the local community, we will work overnight between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday.

We do not currently plan to work Saturday or Sunday nights, however, please note that all our planned works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances, such as clashes with other emergency work on the diversion routes.

How will the work affect traffic and businesses?

To maintain a safe environment for our workforce and motorists, we will need to close the southbound carriageway. During all road closures we will put in place fully signed diversion routes which have been agreed with the Local Authority. A 50mph speed restriction will also be in place on the northbound carriageway.

How will this work affect traffic?

We'll make sure that access to business and residence is maintained wherever possible. We'll also have a dedicated Public Liaison Officer on hand to answer any questions.

During the day (6am to 8pm) all carriageways will be open as usual.

We apologies for any inconvenience this essential maintenance works causes and will do or very best to complete the job as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and nose to a minimum.

We would also like to thank local businesses, residents and road users for their support whilst we carry out these essential works
