HS2 Works Notification: Banbury Lane closure 31 January – postponed

We recently sent a notification for a temporary closure of Banbury Lane, in Lower Thorpe Mandeville, Northamptonshire, due to start on 31 January 2022. This closure was required to construct a site access road crossing on Banbury Lane to allow our construction vehicles to safely pass across the highway.

We have taken the decision to postpone, as our recent investigations show that further closures would have been required to complete the work at this location. To reduce community impact, the work will now be combined into one closure period, likely to commence in March or April 2022.

Banbury Lane will be open as normal next week and we will communicate out the revised dates of this closure as soon as possible.
