Traffic management on the A361 near Chipping Warden 22-26 January 2024

The week (22-26 January 2024) we will be carrying out utility survey work on the A361 near Chipping Warden. It will require a lane closure of the A361, controlled by 3-way traffic lights.

We will need to excavate sections of the highway to inspect utilities located under the road, and therefore a lane closure and traffic lights may be required 24 hours a day while we carry out the work.  It forms part of our preparations to realign the A361 over the Chipping Warden Green Tunnel.

Summary of the traffic management:

  • A lane closure on the A361, controlled by traffic lights from Monday 22 January to Friday 26 January 2024.
  • The area controlled by the traffic lights may also include the existing EKFB compound entrance on the A361, where traffic lights are already installed during daytime hours.
  • Please note that this is a lane closure only, not a full road closure. Access to properties will be available throughout the work.
