British Grand Prix weekend – Travel information for local people

July 4th, 2017

It’s nearly that time of year again when regular users of the A43 may well need to consider alternative routes. The weekend after next sees the Formula 1 circus roll into Silverstone as one of the closest seasons in recent times continues to unfold. The usual massive crowds are expected to invade South Northamptonshire for the British Grand Prix weekend from Thursday, July 13 through Sunday, July 16. As ever, diversions will be in effect at various times between Friday and Sunday. (Be aware, though, that there’s also likely to be traffic disruption from Thursday afternoon because the main F1 programme is preceded that evening by a Travis concert with support acts taking the stage from 18:30.)

In summary, the travel plan for the Grand Prix weekend includes:

  • Closure of the A43 to through traffic 07:00 - 21:00 on Friday and Saturday, and 06:00 - 21:00 on Sunday
  • A one-way system in place between Towcester and Welsh Lane (B4525) throughout the period of closure
  • Lifting of the one-way system each day between 11:30 and 12:30 to allow local access
