NOTIFICATION OF WORK TO MAINTAIN THE A45 EAST & WESTBOUND BETWEEN STANWICK TO RAUNDS ROUNDABOUT

Re: A45 Stanwick to Raunds Roundabout general maintenance and carriageway resurfacing works.
NOTIFICATION OF WORK TO MAINTAIN THE A45 EAST & WESTBOUND BETWEEN STANWICK TO RAUNDS ROUNDABOUT
We have been informed that Highways England will shortly carry out essential maintenance work on the existing carriageway on the above section of the A45. The work will take place from 3rd to 14th September 2018.
The works involve road resurfacing between Stanwick and Raunds Roundabout, footway resurfacing, layby patching, vegetation clearance between Stanwick and Chowns Mill Roundabout and other routine maintenance activities.
This work is necessary as sections of the existing carriageway have reached the end of their serviceable life. To minimise inconvenience and disruption to the travelling public, and maintain a safe environment for our workforce and customers, we will need the following overnight (between 20:00 to 06:00) closures at various times throughout the works between 3rd to 14th September 2018;
1) A45 eastbound from Chowns Mill Roundabout to Stanwick Roundabout
2) A45 westbound from Stanwick Roundabout to Chowns Mill Roundabout
3) A45 east and westbound between Stanwick Roundabout and Raunds Roundabout
We will have in place clearly signed diversion routes during any necessary closures, which we have agreed with the local authority.
A45 Eastbound closed between Chowns Mill Roundabout and Raunds Roundabout Main Diversion for Trunk Road Traffic.
Vehicles travelling eastbound along the A45 will be diverted at Chowns Mill Roundabout onto the A6 towards Kettering. Traffic shall continue on the A6 until the A6/A14 Junction (Junction 10) where traffic will take the third exit from the roundabout and enter the A14 eastbound. Traffic will continue on the A14 until the A45/A14 Junction (Junction 10) where traffic will re-join the A45 and the diversion will end.
A45 Westbound closed between Raunds Roundabout and Chowns Mill Roundabout
Main Diversion for Trunk Road Traffic.
Vehicles travelling westbound along the A45 will be diverted north to the A14 Junction 13 where it will take the first exit from the roundabout and continue on the A14 to Junction 10. At This junction traffic will exit the A14 and take the first exit from the roundabout onto the A6 south. Traffic will continue on the A6 until Chowns Mill Roundabout where traffic will re-join the A45 and the diversion will end.
Cyclist restriction will also be required at times:
Cycle way closed overnight (8.00pm – 6.00am) between Stanwick Roundabout and Chowns Mill Roundabout. Cyclists to use alternative route provided around the works. During the day (6.00am - 8.00pm), Cyclists are to dismount and use the footway on foot.
Pedestrian restrictions will also be required at times: Footway closed overnight (8.00pm – 6.00am) between Stanwick Roundabout and Chowns Mill Roundabout. Pedestrians to use alternative route provided around the works.
We will keep the carriageway be open as normal during the daytime.
We are currently notifying key stakeholders including the emergency services and local residents.
Please note that all planned roadworks are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. We will do our very best to complete the work as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and noise to a minimum.
