Notice of Road Closures – Wormleighton

Update message from Fusion, working on behalf of HS2

Following on from the earlier completed ecology surveys we will now be continuing our established programme of bat and ecology mitigation.

To enable this to happen safely we will complete the works over eight phases and we  will need to have full weekday and some Saturday closures between 27 September until 19 November 2021. Weekday closures will take place during the hours of 09.30am to 3.30pm and Saturdays 8am until 1pm. This is to allow ecologists to safely observe and where necessary climb roadside trees to check for habitat. Subject to the outcome of these surveys tree limbs / trees may be felled at this time. We will also be undertaking roadside vegetation clearance as part of the great crested newt mitigation works.

The programme and locations required are summarized in the table below:


Phase Location Date
Phase 1 Stoneton Lane/Leisure Drive 27 September until 30 September 2021


Phase 2,3


Banbury Road


1 October until 11 October 2021
