We are carrying out essential maintenance work to the existing drainage system. This will reduce deterioration and minimise the number of emergency repairs required in this flooding hotspot.
We will also resurface both directions of the A5 to maintain the integrity of the road surface on the A5 between the Old Stratford Roundabout junction (A5/A508) and Paulerspury.
Our customers will benefit from a safer, more resilient route, and enhanced driver experience.
To maintain a safe environment for our workforce and customers, we will need to fully close the A5. To minimise disruption, we will do this overnight. For more information on roadworks, check the roadworks calendar.
We will keep the A5 open during the day, and will provide vehicle escort through the site to maintain local access during the work.
The diversion route will be via A508, M1, A43 and A5 for motorway traffic and A508, A45, A5076, A5123 and A43 for non-motorway traffic.
