As part of the development of the A43 Corby Link Road it will be necessary once again to close the Stanion Roundabout.
Since the first closure at the Stanion Island, the essential new drainage and kerbing works have been completed and this latest closure will allow the final tarmac surfacing and white lining to be completed.
When will the closure take place?
The closures will be over a four-day period, weather permitting, and will take place during the October half term school holiday when roads are relatively quiet.
As before, the closure will take place in two phases with each phase scheduled to last for two days. Three-way traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the works.
The first phase, starting on Monday 28 October, will see the work taking place on the northern side of the roundabout, with phase two seeing work on the southern side.
Advanced warning signs will be put in place in the week leading up to the closure, to alert people to diversions and the A6003 will be fully open to accommodate traffic.
How will the work be done?
The works will be undertaken in two phases:
As before, Phase 1 will see the closure of the A43 between the junction of the A43/A6086 (adjacent to the Holiday Inn) and the Stanion Roundabout (A43/A6116 junction).
During this phase, there will be no access to Corby, north from the Stanion Roundabout.
Throughout, there will be three-way traffic lights in operation on the Stanion roundabout, to permit continued use of Longcroft Road, A43 south of the Stanion roundabout and the A6116 Brigstock Road).
Phase 1 diversions
- Access to and from the Eurohub and Little Stanion will be maintained via the A6116 (Brigstock Road) and the A43 south of the Stanion Roundabout, via Geddington.
Other traffic – heading South
- Traffic travelling towards the A14 from Corby or the A43 south bound from Weldon/Stamford, should use the A6014 Cottingham Road, the A6003 South towards Kettering, and the A43 Kettering Bypass out to the A14 junction 7.
- Traffic wishing to access the Eurohub/Little Stanion from Corby or A43 Southbound, should also use the A6014 Cottingham Road and the A6003 South towards Kettering and use the A43 via Geddington.
Phase 2 will be the closure of the A43 to the south of the Stanion Roundabout (A43/A6116 junction).
During this phase, there will be no access to Kettering, Geddington or south from the Stanion Roundabout.
Throughout, there will be three-way traffic lights in operation on the Stanion Roundabout, to permit continued use of Longcroft Road, A43 North of the Stanion Roundabout, and the A6116 Brigstock Road.
Phase 2 diversions
- Access to and from the Eurohub and Little Stanion will be maintained via the A6116 (Brigstock Road) and the A43 north of the Stanion Roundabout.
- Access to businesses located along the A43 between Weekley and Stanion will be maintained.
Other traffic - heading north
- Traffic travelling towards Corby or the A43 out towards Weldon/Stamford should use the A43 Kettering Bypass, the A6003 northbound and the A6014 Cottingham Road to re-join the A427/A43.
- Traffic wishing to access the Eurohub/Little Stanion from the A14 should exit at junction 12, onto the A6116 to Stanion roundabout.
Other traffic – heading south
- Travelling south on the A43 from Stamford, vehicles should do the reverse of the above and use the A6014 Cottingham Road, to join the A6003 and on to the A43 Kettering bypass.
- Traffic will be able to access Eurohub/Little Stanion and the A6116 to Brigstock from the direction of Stamford on the A43 but cannot continue through to Kettering or Geddington on the A43.
