Starts On Monday (UPDATED!)
Don’t forget road closures on the Byfield Road start on Monday. This is for work on the River Cherwell Culvert.
Northamptonshire Highways is now advising that times and dates for the closure will be as follows….
Twenty four hours a day closure: 20th July to 24th July
Daytime closure (08:00 to 17:00): 27th July to 31st July.
Access may be restricted to pedestrians and cyclists as well, depending on the work activity.
A letter from Northamptonshire Highways to affected residents shows the road closed between Phipps Road and the bottom of Scrivens Hill (although the work is actually taking place where the road crosses the Cherwell). More recent information on the one.network site indicates the road will only be closed between the entrance to the Sara Field and Scrivens Hill.
For those needing access during the works, Northants Highways say to speak to their people on site and they will allow access. There may be some delays so please allow a bit of extra time.
Anyone with access issues during the works can contact the Northamptonshire Highways site manager, Michael Murray on 07584 340317.
This will also affect the bus service 200 which uses this road.
Stagecoach has posted (see picture right…) on the King’s Corner / Station Road bus stop that it will be closed between 20th and 31st July and that passenger’s should use the stop at Hinton Close. The stop at the foot of Scrivens Hill is closed as well for the same period.
There aren’t any details of service changes on the Stagecoach web site at present but we will update this post if that changes.
We have also been asked if we can provide a clearer version fo the map so here is our attempt. This reflects the road closure advice on one.network. (click on the map for a bigger image)
