Roadworks : Sywell Road closure 17-31 May

A message from Northamptonshire Highways…

“Cadent Gas have been undertaking gas main replacement in Holcot village primarily under traffic signals, however, due to the narrow width of Sywell Road it will be necessary to close this road whilst the replacement works go passed.  It is expected that the road will be closed for up to 10 days commencing on the 17th May 2019.  It has been requested that tRIIO, on behalf of Cadent heavily sign the A43 roundabout to ensure that large vehicles follow the diversion route.

A plan showing the closure and diversion can be viewed here″
