A361 Overnight road closures 28 – 29 July

Message from EKFB on behalf of HS2

As you may be aware from the HS2 update emails, there will be a short period of overnight closures at the end of the month on the A361 near Chipping Warden. This is for security barriers and reinforcement work to take place in the area where our temporary bridge will be installed.

The A361 will be closed overnight, 8.00pm to 6.00am on Thursday 28 July and Friday 29 July 2022 with a signed diversion in place. The road will reopen at 6.00am on Saturday 30 July 2022. This is the maximum period of closure and we will endeavor to open the road earlier if the progress allows it.

There is a locally known shorter diversion route via Welsh Road and Culworth Road. However we publish a longer route which is like-for-like in terms of road type, to be compliant with traffic management regulations and to deter the use of smaller roads by unsuitable vehicles.

Emergency services will be allowed through the closure area and have been contacted.
