Hold-ups possible as roadworks begin

Eight weeks of roadworks in a part of Kettering are due to start today.

The work in the Windmill Avenue Deeble Road and Southgate Drive area should be finished by September.

Highways bosses say it`s being done to improve capacity to the roundabout.

There`ll be twenty four hour three way temporary traffic lights and Southgate Drive will be closed from 7.30am to 5pm every day but will be open for access only.

There will be alterations to pedestrian crossing points, new footway surfacing and road resurfacing on all approaches to the roundabout.

The zebra crossing in Deeble Road will be replaced with a new push button-controlled puffin crossing

In Southgate Drive verges will be removed and kerbs replaced to provide areas for people to park.

The carriageway will be replaced with levels being raised with areas for vehicle parking and pedestrians made visible with white markings.
