Planned essential maintenance to A43 Ardley roundabout – overnight works and a full weekend closure

June 4th, 2020

Next Monday, June 8, Highways England commences essential maintenance work on the A43 Ardley roundabout and adjoining M40 slip roads. The roadworks will involve partial reconstruction of the carriageway and drainage improvements. Other works include replacing high friction surfacing, damaged kerbs, lines and studs as well as other general maintenance. The works are scheduled for completion in July 2020 and to minimise disruption to the local community, the contractors will work:

  • Between 20:00 and 06:00, Monday to Thursday, Saturday and Sunday
  • Between 21:00 and 06:00 on Fridays
  • From 21:00 Friday June 26 until 06:00 Monday June 29. (Full weekend closure.)

To maintain a safe environment for the workforce and motorists, the contractors will need to use a mixture of lane and carriageway closures while they work. The programme of drainage works involves deep excavation of the carriageway, which necessitates the full weekend closure. During all road closures, fully signed diversion routes will be in place. All carriageways will be open, as usual, when the contractors are not working. Access to local businesses and residences will be maintained wherever possible.

Overnight works to complete emergency barrier repairs are also scheduled for June on the A43 between Brackley and Silverstone.
