A section of Irthlingborough Road in Wellingborough will be closed for up to five months as work is carried out on the Stanton Cross development.
Improvements to the road network will take place during the closure. It is earmarked to re-open on March 16.
Speaking to the Northamptonshire Telegraph, Paul Soutar, Bovis Homes’ divisional operations director responsible for Stanton Cross, said: “These works are being carried out to improve and enhance the existing public highway.
“Regular pre-start integration meetings have been undertaken to coordinate the numerous and varied key parties required to oversee works in the area, to enable sequential working, rather than consecutively. This should assist in minimising the overall period of disruption.”
A diversion route has been put in place.
Stanton Cross will see the development of 3,650 houses as well as employment areas and shops. It will be the largest growth Wellingborough has seen since the 1960s and will include schools, commercial space, a town park, community centre and doctor’s surgery. Major improvement
s to roads and public transport will also take place.
