Closure of the A422 Through Chicheley

All residents should have received detailed information about 24hr/day closure of the A422 through Chicheley between 8th and approximately 19th August.  Access for residents will be through a manned security gate near Chicheley Hill roundabout.  Below is a copy of the summary e-mail from MK Council advising of the closure.  Please note the information meetings in Chicheley Village Hall to address questions about the closure.

"This email is to give you advance notice of the forthcoming A422 road closure. We will be writing to parishes, and residents and businesses next week with more information covering traffic management arrangements and the diversion route. 

Milton Keynes Council (MKC) will be carrying out significant Highway improvement works along the A422 between Chicheley roundabout and its junction with the A428 at Bromham between 5th August and 18th August. The road should reopen 19th August. The closure will be in place 24hrs a day. The work will be delivered by Ringway, MKC’s Highways Service Provider.

The works will include: 

Significant structural and waterproofing to Swans River Bridge, which requires closure across the whole carriageway 

Highway resurfacing. Some of this work is being completed on behalf of Bedford Borough Council as the resurfacing will be in their Borough. Bedford are funding this part of the works. 

There will be a wide range of communications circulated in advance and during the closure. We have also organised two drop in information sessions to take place to answer any questions on the works being undertaken, traffic management, the diversion route and to help people plan their journeys during this period;
