Advanced Notification of Start of works – A45 Great Doddington Geotechnical scheme

We have been informed from National Highways that the A45 Great Doddington Geotechnical scheme will start on 5 September 2022 and will be completed in winter 2022. These works may affect your journey to Rushden Lakes. Please see a communication from them below:

The scheme will repair sections of the embankment, replace damaged drains, resurface sections of both carriageways and refresh and reinstate road markings and road studs. This essential maintenance work will take place on the eastbound and westbound carriageways of the A45 between Great Doddington (junction 11) and the Wilby Way roundabout (A45/A509).

From 5 September 2022 until 22 September 2022, we’ll be carrying out preparatory works. These preparatory works will include site clearance, trial holes and bore holes. In order to complete these works, we’ll need to close the carriageway from 8.00pm until 6.00am the following morning. Where possible, we’ll also be using overnight lane closures. You can find the current preparatory work programme below:

Please note that all our planned roadworks may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Following completion of these preparatory works, we’ll begin the main works. In order to complete this essential maintenance, we’ll need to utilise full weekend closures. We’ll ensure you are notified of these closures in advance of the works, at a later date. We’ll be sure to advise you of any changes to our programme as required.
