A road in Northampton will be closed in sections during the day from next week until the end of the month for resurfacing works.

Kingsland Avenue in Kingsthorpe is being resurfaced to improve its structural stability and safety for road users and increase skid resistance, according to West Northamptonshire Council.

Work begins on Wednesday (August 11) and is due to end on August 31, with different sections shut on different days as the work progresses, subject to weather conditions.

Portfolio holder for climate, transport, highways, and waste services Phil Larratt said: “Our priority is to keep the highway network open and safe.

"However, we sometimes need to close roads to carry out highway repairs to improve road journeys and enhance local communities.

“We really appreciate residents’ cooperation to move any vehicles parked along the route of our operations.

"This will allow the team to complete the works safely and efficiently, whilst ensuring we keep on programme.

"I would like to thank you for your understanding, patience, and co-operation.”
