Maintenance works planned for Rothwell Road, Kettering

Highways maintenance to start in Occupation Road, Corby

Highways maintenance in Occupation Road, Corby, will start on Monday, March 20 and is scheduled to last for three weeks.

The work will include road resurfacing and patching, essential iron work replacement, speed hump replacement, application of road markings and cleaning of drainage gullies.

Work will take place on weekdays between 9.30am and 3.30pm and will be done in phases with road closures in place between these times.

When a road closure is in place, a diversion route will follow Studfall Avenue to where it connects with Rockingham Road in the town.

Residents will be allowed access to Occupation Road during the works if it is safe for both the road user and the workforce with marshals on hand to advise. Businesses will be open as usual.


Phase one (March 20 to March 24)

Studfall Avenue to Forest Gate Road – surfacing, iron work, speed bumps and lining. Road closed between Studfall Avenue and Forest Gate Road.

Phase two (March 27 to March 31)

Forest Gate Road to Rockingham Road – iron works only. Road closed between Forest Gate Road and Rockingham Road.

Phase three (April 3 to April 7)

Forest Gate Road to Rockingham Road – patching, speed bumps and lining. This phase will be undertaken during the schools’ Easter break to lower disruption to the area. Road closed between Forest Gate Road and Rockingham Road.

Cllr Graham Lawman, North Northamptonshire Council’s Executive Member for Highways, Travel and Assets, said:

“These works are part of our wider comprehensive £1.5million investment plan in communities across the Council area and will see some much-needed improvements to Occupation Road.

“This is a big project, however we have put measures in place to minimise any disruption as much as possible, such as working off-peak and in phases.”

Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council, said:

“Our road network is essential to keep communities connected and businesses thriving – it’s great to see this work taking place and again demonstrates how this administration is investing in our road network in Corby and the wider North Northamptonshire area. I look forward to seeing the end results.”
