Balfour Beatty are currently constructing Phase 1b of the A43 Moulton Bypass on behalf of Northamptonshire County Council. We are writing to inform you that as part of the works there is a requirement to install new drainage pipework and service ducts across both the existing A43 carriageway and the junction of Thorpeville with the A43. More »
This work cannot be undertaken safely whilst the road is open to traffic. We will therefore need to temporarily close the A43 between Round Spinney Roundabout and Moulton Roundabout.
The road will be closed from Midnight on Friday 1st November until 06:00hrs on Monday 4th November 2019. A contingency closure is planned for the weekend of Friday 8th November to Monday 11th November. You will be notified as soon as possible on 4th November if this contingency is required.
Access to your property will be maintained at all times. Please note that the junction between Thorpeville and the A43 will be closed and that a temporary access will be created at the north end of the service road (refer to attached sketch). This temporary access will be closed off once the road re-opens to traffic at 06:00 hrs on Monday 4th November.
During the closure there will be no access to Round Spinney roundabout. As you leave your property you will be required to head the north towards Moulton Roundabout where diversion signs will be in place.
Due to the nature of there may be some noise and disturbance during the weekend. We will undertake necessary measures to reduce this to a minimum wherever possible. Please also note that a third party will be using our road space to carry out gas replacement works during this closure. » Less

Officers from Northamptonshire Police would like to thank knitting enthusiasts for their overwhelming support and generosity in helping to create an army of Bobby Buddies for the Force.
Following an appeal in May, from the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Investigation Team (DAPIT), volunteers from across the county have been busy knitting and as a result, have so far donated more than 800 knitted bears. More »
Bobby Buddies are now available across the Force, and when attending incidents at an address where there are children, officers are being encouraged to give the knitted soft toys to a child to offer some comfort.
Detective Sergeant Jen Castle from DAPIT, said: "The support from local knitting enthusiasts has been absolutely phenomenal, and we cannot thank them enough for all their hard work and generous donations.
"Working in this area, we are aware children must not be overlooked when officers attend their homes to deal with an incident, at what can often be a very confusing and frightening time for them.
"We hope Bobby Buddies will not only bring some comfort to those young children who need it, but also to help officers gain the trust of the child, whose voice should never go unheard."
This is just one of a number of community safety initiatives to receive support from the Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold, who awarded this project £1,000.
Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold said: "This initiative has generated an incredible reaction. Some of the teddies were donated anonymously and some were left with thank you notes for help that police officers have given in the past.
"Knitting and sewing groups have worked together and sent us basket loads of teddies and some people have sent us letters about their own experience of domestic violence.
"My sincerest thanks goes out to everyone who has sent teddies in to us. We have a great stock of toys to help children and we have also got people talking about domestic violence. I'm full of admiration to all the knitters out there, and to the DAPIT team for their great idea."
To ensure there is a Bobby Buddy available for every young child who needs one, the DAPIT need more knitters!

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold has welcomed the announcement that Northamptonshire Police will be funded to recruit 57 additional officers by the end of 2020/21 in the first stage of the Government's uplift of police numbers. More »
These 57 extra officers will be in addition to the 200 new officers that Northamptonshire Police is currently recruiting as a result of the local council tax increase.
The Commissioner and the Chief Constable had already announced plans to recruit 200 officers for Northamptonshire, which would take the Force to 1310 officers, back to where they were in 2010.
Today's announcement of Government funding for a further 57 officers builds on those plans and is just the first phase of the Government's promise to increase numbers, which could see in total funding for around 190 extra police officers for Northamptonshire. On current projections, this would take the Force to over 1500 officers by 2023.
Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold and Chief Constable Nick Adderley have both welcomed the funding announcement and the opportunity to increase police officer numbers in Northamptonshire even further than they have already planned. But the Commissioner also asked for the way funding is allocated to be reviewed, so that Northamptonshire receives its fair share for the future.
"This is great news for the people of Northamptonshire," Stephen Mold said. "People very clearly tell me that they want to see more police officers and they want them to focus very robustly on fighting crime. I welcome the Home Office decision to invest in policing and I thank the Prime Minister for delivering on the commitment he made to increase funding for policing when I met him with other Police and Crime Commissioners.
"The Chief Constable and I had already committed to increasing police officers in Northamptonshire and this support from Government is more than welcome. However, just a few weeks ago, Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary commented on the fact that Northamptonshire Police is disadvantaged by the current funding formula and has been structurally underfunded for a number of years. Alongside this very welcome funding, I will be continuing to ask the Government to deliver on the Prime Minister's additional commitment, which is to review the way funding is allocated to policing to make sure it is totally fair to all forces. The Home Secretary has echoed this view in her comments today.
"We are one of the fastest growing counties in the country and we need recognition that this county deserves more."
Northamptonshire Police receives around £8 less per head of population from the Government than other Forces that the Home Office groups together as being most similar.
Nick Adderley, Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police, said: "I welcome the announcement of an additional 57 officers which will further enhance my commitment to the county of Northamptonshire to provide the very best possible policing services we can.
Fighting crime and protecting the public is non-negotiable for me and with the changes already made, as well as the further investments provided to me by the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) we are already achieving significant improvements in reducing crime and bringing offenders to justice.
"I have already announced that Northamptonshire Police will become the first force to issue all front line officers with Taser, a move which has been wholly supported by our local politicians, the PFCC, Central Government and most importantly, the public. Further funding has been promised by the Home Office to support this rollout, for which I am extremely grateful.
"The additional officers will provide greater visibility and accessibility which supports my drive to build strong and sustainable relationships with the communities we serve."
