The X7 service will be diverted for up to six weeks. The option of keeping one-way traffic controlled by lights would have increased the road works to up to 12 weeks.
Journeys towards Market Harborough and Leicester:
Services will be diverted into Brixworth via the A508 Harborough Road, Scaldwell Road, Harborough Road, Northampton Road where they will then turn around at Froxhill Crescent roundabout and resume their normal route.
Journeys towards Northampton and Milton Keynes:
Services will run as normal as far as Froxhill Crescent roundabout, where they will then turn and exit Brixworth via Northampton Road, Harborough Road, Scaldwell Road and onto the A508 Harborough Road where they will resume their normal route.
During these works, bus services will be unable to serve stops located on Northampton Road between Brixworth Cricket Club and Froxhill Crescent.
The closure is from Blackthorn Avenue going south and finishes at the existing south bound bus layby. Access to the allotments and the cricket club will be restricted, but if there is a particular event needing access the Contractor will endeavour to assist if possible. The Doctors Surgery will not be affected at all by the closure.
A plan showing the closure and diversion can be viewed here.
Brixworth Parish Council is delighted to see construction works begin on the new Brixworth Doctors’ Surgery on the Saxon Rise Estate. The sod cutting ceremony took place earlier today (Friday 6th October) formally marking the start of the building work.
This Surgery building is the result of collaboration between Barratt Homes, Brixworth Parish Council, represented by the Neighbourhood Plan Group, Daventry District Council, the NHS and Saxon Spires Practice and will be funded solely through developer community contributions rather than tax payer’s contribution. Brixworth Parish Council look forward to the Surgery building opening in early 2018 and thank everyone involved in making this achievement possible.
Councillor Alex Coles,Chairman of the Parish Council said’ Securing such a significant and much-needed improvement to Brixworth’s amenities is a fantastic achievement, and testament to the excellent working relationship forged between all parties involved. I would particularly like to thank the members of the Brixworth Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group whose tireless dedication drove this project forward on behalf of Brixworth Parish Council’.
