Overnight road closures on Parkways

Work to resurface the northbound carriageway of Nene Parkway (A1260), between Hampton roundabout and Thorpe Wood roundabout, begins on Wednesday, 19 July.

The main works are expected to last until mid-August and will result in weekday overnight northbound closures between 8pm and 6am. Preliminary works have already taken place on some slip roads.

During the works the road will be open as usual during the day, however there will be a temporary speed limit of 40mph.

As part of the overall resurfacing works the eastbound on-slip at junction 3 of the Fletton Parkway (from Hampton roundabout) will be closed overnight (8pm to 6am) tonight (14 July) and Monday and Tuesday next week (17/18 July). While this closure is on there will be a diversion in place.

Last year the southbound section of the Nene Parkway was resurfaced. Once completed the new parkway surfaces are expected to last for at least 15 years before they need doing again.

In addition to the resurfacing works on Nene Parkway, the council will also be upgrading street lighting as part of the city-wide programme to install LED lighting. These works will continue until October and will also take place overnight, but will generally only result in lane closures, not full carriageway closures.
