Essential Maintenance Works: A43 Southbound – A5/A43 Towcester Roundabout to A43 Northampton Road Roundabout

Essential Maintenance Works: A43 Southbound – A5/A43 Towcester Roundabout to A43 Northampton Road Roundabout

Notification of essential maintenance works: A43 Southbound – A5/A43 Towcester Roundabout to A43 Northampton Road Roundabout.

We are writing to let you know that we will be carrying out essential maintenance work will on the A43 between A5/A43 Towcester roundabout and Northampton Road roundabout on the A43 Southbound carriageway.

During our comprehensive scheme of work on the A43, we will be carrying out deep resurfacing work to partially reconstruct the carriageway, replace missing verge markers and install new road markings and road studs.

We will also be offering litter picking opportunities to the local authority and completing other general maintenance works including gully cleaning and grass cutting which can run concurrently within our closures. This will avoid further unnecessary disruption to motorists and ensure we are working as collaboratively as possible.

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

When will the work take place?

Work is due to start early 25th April 2022 and is scheduled for completion by 26th July 2022. To keep our programme for these works as short as possible and to minimise disruption to the local community, we will work:

  • between 7pm and 6am, Monday to Thursday
  • between 8pm Friday and 8am Saturday

Some weekend working may be required

  • between 7pm Saturday and 9am Sunday
  • between 8pm Sunday and 6am Monday

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?

To maintain a safe environment for our workforce and motorists, we will need to use a southbound carriageway full closures, and other possible lane closures while we work.

During all road closures we will put in place fully signed diversion routes which have been agreed with the Local Authority. All carriageways will be open, as usual, outside our working hours.

If you would like further information regarding the different phases or request diversion route drawings, please contact us so we can explain them in greater detail.

How will the work affect businesses and residents?

We will make sure that access to businesses and residences is maintained wherever possible.

To ensure we keep residents and businesses up to date with the latest closure details we will issue regular bulletins and information. We will also have a dedicated Public Liaison Officer on hand to answer any questions.
