Update on A361 closures

Update on A361 closures Please Note: The two-week night-time closures of A361 for survey work is no longer proceeding. The survey work was planned for Monday 9 January to Saturday 21 January 2023 – no longer going ahead. Other work taking place: There is a very short period of closure required for some line painting under the temporary bridge near our compound on the A361.

HS2 Notice – Road closures and construction updates

Notice from EKFB on behalf of HS2 This is  an update on some construction and road closure activity taking place soon. We will soon be installing the temporary bridge in Chipping Warden. It should be quite impressive to see, as it involves a large crane with careful manoeuvring, but it will involve some weekend road closures. There is also quite a lot of activity taking place in Boddington and Wormleighton, and so I have attached a draft copy of the AWN for the Boddington and Wormleighton areas. Notice of traffic management near Wormleighton and Lower Boddington September 2022_Final_ I have also attached a road closure look-ahead.

Update on HS2 Precast tunnel segment deliveries

Good news regarding the Sunday morning precast deliveries. Message from EKFB on behalf of HS2 After a period of testing and modifications, we have adapted the way we load and transport the largest precast segments. This method reduces the width of the load, which will mean no additional traffic management will be required. With immediate effect, we will no longer routinely be delivering the precast segments using the Sunday morning lane closures. The widest segments will now arrive mid-week, as part of the regular precast delivery schedule to Chipping Warden Compound. Please note that there are some segments which, due to particular design features, may still require occasional use of a road closure. So this option may need to be

HS2 / EKFB – Update on the precast segment deliveries to Chipping Warden.

HS2 / EKFB : A quick update on the precast segment deliveries to Chipping Warden.   The deliveries will take place between 7-9am on 22 May. The reason for the 7am start, rather than 5am, is due to the Oxfordshire overnight roadworks on the A361 being postponed by one week to the Saturday night.  It will involve approximately 5 wide load HGV’s.   Last week’s delivery went well as a first delivery, and we plan to continually refine how we roll out the traffic management, as well as form up the HGV’s, to minimise disruption.   A link to the Chipping Warden Tunnel Update, which includes more information, maps and photographs, is available on the following link:   https://assets.hs2.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/AWN_Notice-of-Green-Tunnel-Works_May_2022.pdf
