Communication received from NCC Highways - A422 bridgeworks

Work is progressing well on the repairs to the bridge and we are on schedule to complete prior to Christmas. The works started on Monday November 19 and are on a four week programme. The pre-fabricated unit has arrived on site and will be installed from Monday 3rd December.

During the closure we have been inspecting and monitoring the local roads as, despite the official diversion in place, we understand some drivers are using local roads. We cannot force traffic to use the diversion and people do make their own choices. Safety defects have been and will continue to be repaired.

We have secured funding to carry out extensive patching works on the Cockley Road. This will be next year and I will update with dates and information once I am able to. The works will be carried out under temporary closures as we are unable to let traffic use the route during works to ensure safety of all road users and our workforce.

We are also carrying out patching works along the A422, within the closure, in preparation for surface dressing season in 2019/20. Once this programme is agreed information will be publicised.

I would also like to take this opportunity to explain the Gigaclear works that have been taking place on the B4525. This is part of the Northamptonshire County Council roll out of Superfast Broadband and road space was booked many months ago, before the emergency closure on the A422. They are working to very tight deadlines in each area and to meet these we did need to allow for this work to take place. They are due to finish tomorrow (Friday Nov 30).

Please feel free to share this and encourage people to join the mailing list by just emailing me -

Information is also on this factsheet on the Northamptonshire County Council website. Factsheet

Kind regards.
