THE U519 Stowe Castle Road/Bycell Road at Lillingstone Lovell will be closed at night-time for a week for roadworks from Monday, June 27.

Transport for Bucks will be undertaking highway maintenance works to prolong the life of the road and to improve the skid resistance for road safety purposes.

Work is programmed to start on Monday and, weather permitting, is expected to be completed by Friday, July 1.

The Stowe Castle Road will be closed from the junction with Main Street to Home Farm and Bycell Road will be closed from the junction with the A413 Towcester Road to the junction with Akleley Road.

Work will take place between 7pm and 5am but access will be maintained to properties at all times.

Every effort will be made to carry out the work with minimum disturbance, but due to the nature of the work some disruption may occur.

Initial work will involve planing and patching sections of the road to provide a sound surface.

Subsequent work will involve applying a hot bitumen coating and then covering it with stone chippings using a treatment referred to as surface dressing.

The nature of the treatment means there will be loose chippings on the road surface until it beds down. The workforce will return to the site when the road surface beds down to sweep away any excess chippings.

Additional notices will be sent to inform any households that may be affected when these works will be undertaken.
