A45 Chowns Mill - CANCELLED weekend Closure

A45 Chowns Mill - CANCELLED weekend Closure

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we've postponed this weekend's full closure of the A45/A6 Chowns Mill roundabout.

Next weekend's closures will still go ahead as plannedWe'll fully close the A45/A6 Chowns Mill roundabout on weekend of 12 to 14 March to complete the resurfacing work.

We'll write out to you closer to the time to confirm all closures.

We appreciate that cancelling work at short notice can be a source of frustration. We only do this if it is absolutely necessary to do so. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

NOTE: Signed diversion routes will be in place during any closures. Our planned closures may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Where possible, we will notify you if there are any changes to the schedule.

How will the work affect traffic?

During the closures, we'll put signed diversion routes in place using alternative A-roads to take traffic away from local villages. While we encourage all road users to stick to these diversion routes, which we've agreed with the Local Authority we expect that there may be an increase in traffic on the surrounding local roads. Ditchford Lane and the surrounding villages of Chelveston, Rushden, Higham Ferrers and Irthlingborough may experience delays. If you do need to make an essential journey during either of these weekends, please plan ahead and allow more time for your journey.

Once the surfacing is complete, customers will benefit from travelling on a quieter, smoother road surface. Road users will also be able to see the intended outline of the new junction.
