An overnight closure is needed on Mereway, Northampton, as work progresses on the construction of a new signalised gyratory at the junction of Wootton Hall Park.

The £2.7million Northamptonshire County Council scheme in Mereway will help improve traffic safety and vehicle flow on the town’s ring-road, including access to the Wootton Hall site.

The full road closure will take place between 8:00pm on Friday, 4 March and 6:00am on Saturday, 5 March. The closure is needed as the project enters a new phase and work swaps to a different section of the highway.

What happens next?

Throughout the works until April there will be off-peak lane closures between Mondays and Fridays (9:30am and 3:30pm). These will be introduced depending on requirements, with a 20mph speed limit in place during these times.

In April full road closures will be required for the final road surfacing and reinstating of road markings over various weekends, with the exact dates still to be determined. After the resurfacing work is finished, work will continue under traffic management to allow final aspects of the scheme to take place before the scheduled completion date in May.

As ever with Highways works, dates could change dependent on weather conditions.
