Roadworks on A45 Stanwick to Raunds

Published Monday, 18 September 2017

Monday, 4 December 2017 to Saturday, 27 January 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 8pm to 6am) closures at various times throughout the works between 4 December 2017 to 27 January 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

There will be in place clearly signed diversion routes during any necessary closures, which have been agreed with the local authority.
