We are carrying out pre-surface dressing carriageway patching from Thursday 16 May to Thursday 23 May 2024 (Nights)

We are carrying out minor resurfacing works in this area in preparation for enabling further works this summer.

These future works will involve surface dressing, which is a cost-effective road surface treatment used to prolong the life of roads that are starting to show the first signs of minor deterioration.

It extends the life of the road surface, increases skid resistance, and seals the surface to stop water ingress, protecting it from damage caused by severe winter weather, such as potholes.

Prior to surface dressing, carriageway patching will be undertaken to address any minor issues to prepare the road for the dressing. You will receive a further factsheet this summer with more details on the next phase of surface dressing.

Traffic management

A diversion will be in place between 8pm to 6am as shown below. The red line shows the road closure, and the blue line shows the diversion route.

Working hours

5 nights - 8pm to 6am (Road will be accessible as normal outside of working hours).

Traffic management

The road will be closed to through traffic on A509 Kettering Road, Isham. A diversion will be installed during the work hours as shown on the map above.

Emergency vehicles

Access will be maintained where possible. However, prolonged delays are to be expected.

Residents / Businesses

Access for residents only will be maintained where possible. Our Traffic Management marshals will escort residents through the closure.

Please expect delays and plan your journeys accordingly. We will have access signs installed in front of driveways. If you require access, please call the number and our TM foreman will get someone to assist you.

Where possible, please park outside of the closure. Access for pedestrians will be maintained where possible, but there will be no access for cyclists.

Public transport

There will be no bus services through these closures during the working hours.


To help us with our work, please move any vehicles parked within this section of the road before 8am. This is to enable our workforce to be able to carry out the works swiftly, without delay.

We also ask that you park leaving a minimum of 20 metres of any junction for the duration of the works. Advanced ‘No Parking’ warning signs will be placed in the area 24 hours before.

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and co-operation.
