Message from EKFB in behalf of HS2

In early February we will be carrying out maintenance on the temporary bridge that crosses the A361 near Chipping Warden. Due to the effects of the winter weather, this work needs to be carried out as a priority.

Please find below the work notice that we have just published on the HS2 website:

Notice-of-night-time-closure-A361-Chipping-Warden-Feb-24.pdf (

  • A section of the A361 Byfield Road will be closed overnight on Friday 9 February and Saturday 10 February, from 8.30pm and 5.30am.
  •  As a contingency, we may also need to close the road on Friday 16 February and Saturday 17 February, from 8.30pm and 5.30am.
  • We will utilize this closure to carry out other work on that section of the highway, including trail hole surveys of utilities.

The closure area will be just north of Chipping Warden. Access for the residential properties within the closure area will be maintained. Emergency services have been informed, but access to emergency service vehicles will be limited due to our workforce using plant and other equipment within section the highway.

If you have any enquiries, please contact me.
