Letter from NCC regarding Library Closures

A5 Roundabout Road Closure

Mon, 23 Jul 2018 10:23 by Teresa Floyd


The final lane resurfacing on the North side of the Old Stratford roundabout is due to take place on 20/21

st July, the advanced signage on approach to the roundabout will be installed shortly. More »

The new traffic light system will be activated later this week, though initially, they will not be running to their optimum technological capabilities. The new signals will initially work on a pre-programmed phase until other short-term works are complete and then the new traffic lights will be wired into the SMART computer system, which will be able to alter and change traffic signals automatically, depending on traffic demand

. I understand that the new system will be fully operational all loops should be cut and working by the end of the week.

Overall, the project and Improvement works are currently around

95% complete.

The planned target and completion date for all works for the Old Stratford roundabout was the 22nd July 2018, this date is significant as it's the start of the Towcester High Street improvement project (see below and attached)

The project team have worked hard to keep the scheme on target, without compromising safety, however for a number of operational reasons, we have been unable to complete all works by this date, which means the remaining works will need to be planned in (in conjunction with) the Towcester High St improvement scheme, so as to avoid clashes.

In summary, works still to be completed the A5 Old Stratford roundabout are;

 New Street lighting columns to be fitted and powered

 Resurfacing of the Footpath and completion of the pedestrian barriers

 Top soiling and seeding

 Lay the permanent hard waring white Lining

 Some drainage works

The project team apologises for the inconvenience, and will keep the remaining work disruption to a minimum.


Throughout August 2018, we plan to carry out the remaining work on nights MONDAY to FRIDAY only, with the existing 40mph and lane restrictions remaining in place.

There are no current plans in place for weekend or full road closures, though this may be considered necessary by the Project Team if significant advantage can be found.

I would like to thank Cllr Ken Pritchard for his help and support over the recent ONE WAY system introduced in Passenham and road closure into Puxley.

I am aware that the ONE WAY system caused much debate on local Social Media with some suggesting this idea was a Passenham residents scheme, though I can confirm this was introduced by Highways England, following complaints of grid lock from a large number of motorists and with the support of local Cllrs, residents and Police, feedback following the ONE WAY system was that it was a success. » Less
