A43 roundabout

Road works will take place on the A43 between Northampton and Kettering from Monday 27 July 2020. A southbound lane restriction will be in place for five weeks from The Avenue to Thorpville for the safety of both road users and workers.

The works will involve excavation and reinstatement of the footpath as part of the new David Wilson housing development.

Funded partly by the Government’s Local Growth Fund through SEMLEP, the new section of dual carriageway between Round Spinney and the Moulton roundabout opened fully last month, bypassing the old road to ease congestion and improve journey times.

The plan was for all partner organisations to complete any works in the area using the traffic management for the A43 improvement scheme, however due to Covid-19 some organisations were unable to continue which has resulted in utility works for the housing development being delayed.

Regular updates can be found on the Northamptonshire Highways Twitter page.
