A5 JACK’S HILL Multi-Disciplinary Project - Update Bulletin 2 – 29.1.2020

Dear Member

Please find attached the latest update report received on the A5 work going on overnight.

Update Bulletin 2 – 29.1.2020

Works to our essential maintenance scheme on the A5, between Tove roundabout (A43) and Weedon, started on Monday 13th January 2020 as planned.

We are currently working in Phase 1, which runs northwards from Tove roundabout (A43) to the Banbury Lane / Butcher’s Lane crossroads in Foster’s Booth.

Works carried out to date in Phase 1 include: vegetation clearance, tree removal, clearing grass and vegetation from footpaths, CCTV surveys of existing drainage pipelines, repairs to pipelines using trenchless technology, trial holes to locate mains and services, re-forming roadside ditches and breaking out existing kerb lines to replace them with an integral kerbing and drainage system.

These works, together with repairs to pipelines by excavating trenches, installation of new pipelines and headwalls to those pipelines where they enter ditches, will continue in Phase 1 for the next few weeks.

Vegetation clearance, tree removal, CCTV surveys of existing drainage pipelines and repairs to pipelines using trenchless technology started this week in Phase 2, which runs from Banbury Lane / Butchers’s Lane crossroads in Foster’s Booth to Northampton Road (Litchborough). Excellent progress to site clearance and tree removal in Phase 1 has resulted in Phase 2 starting earlier than planned. These works in Phase 2 will continue for the next few weeks.

NB: Phases 1 and 2 will now run concurrently for the next few weeks but, access across the A5 at the Banbury Lane / Butchers’s Lane crossroads in Foster’s Booth will be maintained. These particular works will be carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am Mondays to Fridays inclusive.

In an effort to reduce the environmental impact of our works, cordless electric STIHL chainsaws are in the process of being purchased by our specialist contractor. These chainsaws are particularly intended for use in residential areas due to their reduced operational noise levels.

Please note that we are planning to carry out a road crossing of the A5 in Phase 1, just south of the Banbury Lane / Butchers’s Lane crossroads in Foster’s Booth, over one weekend.

These works, to install a new surface water drain, are currently planned to take place between 8pm Friday 14th February and 6am Monday 17th February 2020.

Please note that the A5, between Tove roundabout (A43) and Weedon, will remain open as usual when we are not working and winter maintenance work, i.e. gritting of the road, will be carried out as normal.

Please also note that all our planned road works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Local businesses will be open as usual during these essential works so please continue to use these and ask others to do the same. I’m sure that your local business community would appreciate it.

I apologise for any disruption our works may cause. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
