Closure & Diversions on A43 at Stanion starting 9th September

Closure & Diversions on A43 at Stanion starting 9th September

– in more detail

 Information from Northamptonshire Highways.

 “Work is continuing on the A43 Corby Link Road and when it is complete the route will help improve the county’s strategic infrastructure. Soon, however, as part of the £34 million Northamptonshire County Council project, work will need to take place at the Stanion end of the four-mile long dual carriageway.  As part of the project, sections of the A43 around Stanion will need to be closed from Monday September 9th for 2 weeks in order to undertake the re-alignment of the existing Stanion Roundabout.”

 “The next part of the work is quite difficult in terms of traffic management, which will allow the Stanion Roundabout to be modified and kerb lines re-aligned, whilst maintaining access to Little Stanion and the Eurohub.  This is an essential piece of work on a very busy road, so there are bound to be times when congestion is unavoidable, especially in the peak periods, but we would urge all road users to be patient and allow extra time for journeys.”

“The works will be undertaken in two phases:

Phase 1 will be the closure of the A43 between the junction of the A43/A6086 (adjacent to the Holiday Inn) and the Stanion Roundabout (A43/A6116 junction). Throughout there will be three-way traffic lights in operation on the Stanion roundabout, to permit continued use of Longcroft Road, A43 South of the Stanion roundabout, and the A6116 Brigstock Road. Diversion routes will signpost the following:-

Local traffic

·  Access to and from the Eurohub and Little Stanion will be maintained via the A6116 (Brigstock Road) and the A43 South of the Stanion Roundabout, via Geddington.

·  Access to businesses located along the A43 between Weldon and Stanion will be maintained.

 Other traffic – heading south

·  Traffic travelling towards the A14 from Corby or the A43 south bound from Weldon/Stamford, should use the A427 Westbound towards Cottingham, the A6003 South towards Kettering, and the A43 Kettering Bypass out to the A14, junction 7.

·  Traffic wishing to access the Eurohub/Little Stanion from Corby or A43 southbound, should also use the A427 westbound to Cottingham, the A6003 South towards Kettering and use the A43 via Geddington.

Phase 2 will be the closure of the A43 to the south of the Stanion Roundabout (A43/A6116 junction)

Throughout there will be three-way traffic lights in operation on the Stanion roundabout, to permit continued use of Longcroft Road, A43 North of the Stanion Roundabout, and the A6116 Brigstock Road. Diversion routes will signpost the following:-

Local traffic

·  Access to and from the Eurohub and Little Stanion will be maintained via the A6116 (Brigstock Road) and the A43 north of the Stanion Roundabout.

·  Access to businesses located along the A43 between Weekley and Stanion will be maintained.

Other traffic – heading north

·  Traffic travelling towards Corby or the A43 out to Weldon/Stamford should use the A43 Kettering Bypass, the A6003 Northbound, and the A427 eastbound to the A43.

·  Traffic wishing to access the Eurohub/Little Stanion from A14 should exit at junction 12, onto the A6116 to Stanion roundabout.”

      I’ve just spoken to Rebecca Miller, Communications Manager at Northamptonshire Highways, who has been deluged with phonecalls since 5am. The delays relating to such major work is unavoidable and the Link Road is still on target for completion in March 2014, bringing major relief and benefits to Geddington. Rebecca is keen to keep lines of communication open and can be contacted on 01604 883434 – or probably better if possible by Twitter by following nnhighways . Updated information on the road can be obtained through the Corbylinkroad.com website.

      Many phone calls have been made by parents trying to get their children to school in Geddington – schools were contacted by Highways in advance of this work to explain that there will be delays and children may be late so they should not be penalised for this.

      Despite signage and warnings to avoid the area, it seems that people are still making a determined effort to get through the works, which really doesn’t help. If at all possible, avoid the area or use the diversion via the A6003 and other signposted routes.

      Lorries and trucks are exacerbating delays at 3 way lights and every effort is being made to get the message across to avoid the A43 wherever possible.

      Little Oakley villagers’ concerns about traffic trying to get through to Great Oakley have been reported and attempts will be made to improve signage.

      Work will continue on the north side of the Stanion roundabout this week and then next week on the south side. Major delays are expected until this work is completed.

      Yesterday I had cause to drive eastbound from the A1 along the A43 towards the A14 and M6. I did not know about the road closure in advance and felt the diversion was not well marked, though I did manage to follow it. Had I known earlier i might have taken a different route (A605?) avoiding Corby/Kettering altogether. However the scheme will make a positive difference when completed.
