HS2 Works Notification: Notice of overnight road closures, A43, Brackley BP roundabout to the Syresham junction
What are we doing?
This spring, we will begin construction on a temporary diversion of a section of the A43. This diversion is required so that we can build the new A43 Overbridge that will carry traffic over the HS2 railway line. We will soon be installing narrowed lanes on the northbound side of the A43, along with road safety barriers. These narrowed lanes will remain operational into winter.
In order to carry out these works safely, there will be overnight closures of the A43. The lay-bys on the southbound side of the A43 will also be closed from Friday 28 April for approximately five weeks, allowing us to coordinate our plant and machinery for the overnight closures. The layby located opposite Illets Farm will remain closed for the duration of our works while we build the A43 Overbridge. For the safety of road users and our workforce there will also be speed restrictions on this section of road.
Once the narrowed lanes and safety barriers are installed, the main works to construct the temporary diversion will commence.
We will also be delivering plant and material to our works sites on the A43 as well as carrying out some localised vegetation clearance. To do this safely, there will be overnight closures of the A43 on some weekends. We will continue to collaborate with National Highways and update local communities on the progression of our works.
When will these works take place?
The A43 northbound will be fully closed overnight, from the Brackley BP roundabout to the Syresham Junction, from 8pm to 6am, on the following dates:
• Sunday 18 June and Sunday 25 June
The A43 southbound will be fully closed overnight, from the Brackley BP roundabout to the Syresham Junction, from 8pm to 6am on the following Saturdays:
• Saturday 3 June, Saturday 10 June, Saturday 17 June and Saturday 24 June
Where will the works take place?
The map below, shows the section of the A43 that will have overnight road closures from the Brackley BP roundabout to the Syresham Junction. The diversion route is via the A421, A422 and A5.
In addition to this notice, the road closure information will also be communicated through traditional road signage as well as electronic signage. These signs will be located in strategic locations and placed in a safe location. We would remind all road users to plan their journeys, allow more time and follow the signed diversion routes.
For the safety of road users and our workforce there will also be speed restrictions on this section of road. Periodic overnight lane closures will continue along this section of the A43, northbound and southbound, allowing us to progress our works for the temporary diversion of the A43.
