More Road Closures and Diversions Affecting Wansford

Message from National Highways:

A1 southbound between Wansford and Stibbington: safety signage improvements

I am writing to tell you that we plan to carry out works to upgrade safety signage on the A1 southbound between Wansford and junction 17, Peterborough.

We plan to complete this work over 2 nights from on Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 January. We will work between 8pm and 6am, weather permitting.

Closures and diversions

To mitigate rat-running of A1 traffic through Wansford, we will be closing Old North Road in one direction, between the A47 roundabout and Black Swan Spinney. Residents of Black Swan Spinney and Swanhill will still be able to turn left or right onto Old North Road.

*All vehicles can still use Old North Road to exit Wansford village onto the A47*

Whilst Old North Road is closed, we kindly ask that you use Old Leicester Road to gain access to Wansford and Stibbington.  A map of where we propose to close, and the access points can be found attatched.

Whilst the A1 is closed, southbound traffic will be diverted from the A1 at Wansford and directed to follow the A47, A1260 Nene Parkway and A1139 Fletton Parkway, before re-joining the A1(M) southbound at junction 17, Fletton Parkway Interchange.
