The planned closure of a road in Northampton town centre as part of the work to demolition Greyfriars bus station has been postponed, it has been announced.

Lady’s Lane was due to be closed from tomorrow (Friday) until Monday, January 19, but Northampton Borough Council announced today the work had been postponed until next weekend.

This closure will be in place to allow work to remove the tower and bridge connected to Greyfriars ahead of the complete demolition of the building.

Lady’s Lane will now be closed to traffic at 7pm on Friday, January 23 until 6am on Monday, January 26, with diversions in place for motorists.

A spokesman for the council said the rephrasing of the planned works would have no impact on the timing of the overall demolition of Greyfriars, which is due to take place before the end of March this year.
