Drivers can expect a lot of extra traffic in Northampton for the next two years.

It's for roadworks to eventually help the traffic at three of the town's busiest junctions; the Queen Eleanor, Brackmills and the Great Billing junctions on the A45.

Works starts in June.


Northampton County Council is to get £4m to improve road infrastructure ahead of plans to build new homes.

The money is coming from Highways England - will be spent on the Queen Eleanor, Brackmills and Great Billing junctions of the A45 with work starting in June, with completion slated for March 2021.

The authority says the improvements won't be from the "Homes England" development at Hardingstone, where 750 homes are are going to be constructed and will put many more vehicles onto the already congested pinch-points.
