​Northamptonshire Highways will be carrying out extensive gully cleansing work in the Far Cotton and Briar Hill areas of Northampton starting on Tuesday, 28 May for a period of six weeks.

People are being asked not to park on the highway in these areas between 8:00am and 4:00pm during this time, to enable easy access for the highways operatives and the necessary equipment needed to complete the tasks.

The roads will remain open to drivers although ‘No Parking’ signs will be erected throughout sites to advise residents of the times when vehicles should be removed.

Parked vehicles, which are preventing or hindering the works taking place, may be relocated to an adjacent street. This will be carried out by an approved contractor and vehicles will be moved within the vicinity.

Northampton Borough Council and Veolia will also take advantage of the streets being clear of vehicles to carry out street cleaning.

People are being thanked in advance for their cooperation. Parked vehicles do make it very difficult to carry out gully cleansing and by moving vehicles out of the way the job can be completed more safely and efficiently.
