HS/2 closure of Banbury Lane, Lower Thorpe Mandeville 7 March

HS/2 closure of Banbury Lane, Lower Thorpe Mandeville 7 March

Following our utility trial hole surveys in December 2021, we now have confirmed dates for the Banbury Lane closure to complete our highway crossing.

In the area where our internal access road crosses Banbury Lane, we will create a strengthened surface using concrete, to ensure that we protect the road and any utilities underneath. The site access road will reduce HS2 traffic on local highways by providing an internal route from Greatworth Green Tunnel Compound to our construction areas between Lower Thorpe Mandeville and Edgcote.

Banbury Lane will be fully closed, 24 hours a day, from Monday 7 March 2022, with a diversion in place for approximately 4 weeks. This is the maximum duration of the closure. We will work to open the road earlier if possible, depending on the progress and extent of reinforcement work required.

As previously communicated, Public Right of Way, footpath BB11, from Magpie Farm to Lower Thorpe Mandeville, will be temporarily diverted to a new entry / exit point onto Banbury Lane. This is to avoid footpath users entering our construction area. The short diversion of footpath BB11 will be in place for a period of approximately 4 years.
