A full road closure will be taking place on the A5 southbound and northbound at Magna Park, between the M69 and Cross in Hand roundabout. The 57-hour full weekend closure is for Volkerfitzpatrick to carry out carriageway works that cannot be done safely during single overnight closures. Once these works are finished, the traffic management will switch over to ‘phase 2’. This will involve moving traffic onto the newly built southbound carriageway.
By doing this, they will be able deliver all works associated with widening the northbound carriageway. The closure will be in place from 8.00pm on Friday 21 June to 5.00am on Monday 24 June. To maintain a safe working area for our workforce, there will be partial closures in place at the junction with the M69/A5 and all junctions south of this. A gateman will be available at all times to allow local traffic through, right up to Woodway Lane (Claybrooke). By doing this, we can ensure that access is maintained to all properties.
The road will be fully closed at Woodway lane (Claybrooke) to the Cross in Hand roundabout, in both directions. There will be signed diversion routes in operation, one for non-motorway traffic and one for motorway traffic. We will check the diversion routes regularly to make sure that they are running freely and we will clear any hold ups that occur due to breakdowns etc.
