A4300 Temporary Closure Notice

Those who travel on the A4300 between Grange Road and Newton Road will have noticed the potholes as they appeared. Take heart, they should disappear by the end of this week.

.

Northampton County Council Highways are closing this part of the road on
Friday 12 May from 9.30am – 3.30pm
to carry out carriageway repairs.

Diversions for residents will, of course, be through the village centre, via Queen Street, the old bridge, Bridge Street and West Street, all of which have a maximum speed limit of 20mph. Just a reminder as some people have either forgotten or don’t know about it.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For non-residents and through traffic, there will be CLOSED signs at the roundabouts near Weekley and Stanion.

 

 

A14/A43 Junction Traffic Works & Closures

Resurfacing work will be carried out at the roundabout junction of the A14 and the A43 (junction 8), near Kettering this month.

.

Because of the scale of the works and to protect the public and workforce, some road closures are needed on the roundabout over two weekends.

1. The first closure will be from 8pm on Friday,18 November to 6am on Monday 21 November.

2. The second closure will be from 8pm on Friday 25 November to 6am on Monday 28 November.

1. The roundabout closures will be phased with the east side of the roundabout closed on the first weekend (Kettering side). The slip roads, both on and off the A14 eastbound will also be closed.

2. The west side of the roundabout will be closed on the second weekend (Broughton side). The slip roads, both on and off the A14 west bound will also be closed at this time.

A fully signed diversion route will be in place whilst the closures are in place, including the A14 messaging signs.

A4300 Road Closure Notice

There will be road closures on the A4300
between Geddington and the Stanion Island
during September and October.

There have been signs on the road for the last week or so, but there is so much information on them, that it has not been possible to read them from a passing vehicle.

Here, then, is what is written:

Work will commence on Monday 21st September on the A4300 between the Little Oakley junction and the Stanion island.
The work will take 4 weeks to complete and will result in delays and closures.

WEEKDAY WORKINGS
21 September – 16 October: 2 and 3 way traffic lights, 9.30 – 3.30

WEEKEND WORKINGS
Saturday & Sunday 26 – 27 September,  24hr road closure
Saturday & Sunday 3 – 4 October,  24 hr road closure
(Road will be closed from 8am on Saturday to 6pm on Sunday)

Signage will be positioned at the Weekley island advising ‘NO HGVs’ and the road narrowed with cones to make it difficult for them to go towards Geddington. Signage will also be placed at junctions along the A4300 advising that the roads are unsuitable for HGVs.

Diversion routes are shown on this map.

West Street Closure Reminder

Just a reminder:

West Street Closure

The works will be in place for up to five days starting on:

Monday 23rd February and lasting until Friday 27 February.

However the good news is that the closure is planned to take place between the hours of 9.15am and 3pm.

The Northamptonshire Highways spokesperson commented: “This is to ensure that as little disruption as possible is caused to the parents dropping off and collecting their children from the Wood Street school, colloquially known as ‘The School Run’.”

From my experience, parents come much earlier than 3pm, so for those who live outside the village, the accompanying map (click on the link: West Street, Geddington below) shows the diversion route.  For residents of the village, the diversion is obvious and already well used when the village centre is being used for events!

West Street, Geddington

The Northamptonshire Highways spokesperson continued:

“In the unlikely event that the works over-run on any day (due to plant issues or late tarmac delivery) we will aim to provide access where possible to those who need it.”

Do please be aware that weather conditions
may also affect the works and the timing.

West Street Works – Part 2

 Geddington.net now has more information
about the closure of West Street.

The works will be in place for up to five days starting on Monday 23rd February. However the good news is that the closure is planned to take place between the hours of 9.15am and 3pm.

This is to ensure that as little disruption as possible is caused to the parents dropping off and collecting their children from the Wood Street school, colloquially known as ‘The School Run’.

West Street Works!

WEST STREET WORKS!White Line featured image

No, not a comment on the abilities of the West Street residents to provide a crust for their families, but more news on the white lines that appeared on the road in December.

At that time, Geddington.net was told that road works would commence in March, but we now understand that these have been brought forward to February.

The Kettering & Daventry Districts Department of Northamptonshire Highways has advised that the National Grid are planning to work near to 25 West Street (the Vicarage) for a maximum of 3 days from 18th February. This work will involve excavations in the carriageway, so expect delays at busy times.

However, on completion of the National Grid works, Northamptonshire Highways are planning a FULL ROAD CLOSURE, to carry out surfacing repairs. It is provisionally planned for the week commencing Monday 23rd February and will take place between 8am and 5pm for a maximum of 5 days, although this is weather dependant.

Geddington.net was also told: “When a firm booking has been made with NCC’s street works team, letters will be hand delivered to all affected residents and advanced road closure warning signs, together with any necessary parking restriction signs, will be put in place along West Street.”

A4300 Safer Roads Team Traffic Survey

The Northamptonshire Police

Safer Roads Team

.

The Safer Roads Team has given geddington.net permission to publish the results of a traffic survey that it carried out in June.

This was an automatic survey done by a fixed recorder to the lamppost outside the White Lion entrance off the A4300, for a period of 10 days. It recorded the number of vehicles and their speeds.

To see the breakdown of the Report, click on the link below.

Traffic Survey Report for A4300

PSL stands for Permitted Speed Limit.  85% of the 96,657 vehicles recorded, were travelling at or below this speed.

Please note the maximum speed of one or more vehicles was at 86mph.

If you have any queries concerning this report, either contact the Department at the top of the Survey Report, or your local councillors.

 

 

 

Grafton Road – temporary disruption

Monday 21 July

Grafton Road is suffering a temporary disruption tonight as Western Power Distribution attempts a repair to a ‘blown cable’, that has taken power from some of the Grafton Road residences.

A representative from Western Power said: “We are not certain how long this will take, it all depends on what we find when we dig the hole!”

Wednesday 23 July

The work continues through to a third day, or perhaps night would be the better description, as residents on Grafton Road heard the diggers and grabbers at work in the early hours (3am) of this morning.

21.00hrs Tuesday 23rd July
