Temporary Road Closure - Knowle Hill, Hurley

Warwickshire County Council propose to make a Temporary Traffic Order closing Knowle Hill, Hurley to all traffic.

The Order will commence on 25 January 2012 and will last for a period of 18 months, or until the works are completed, whichever is the earlier. However, it is anticipated the road will only be closed between 25 January 2012 and 31 January 2012.

The closure is required for highway reconstruction.

Pedestrian access to and egress from properties and land situated adjacent to the length of road to be closed will be maintained at all times. Vehicular access will be maintained where possible.

The full article is available here http://www.northwarks.gov.uk/news/article/1553/temporary_road_closure-knowle_hill_hurley, along with a plan of the diversion around the village for through traffic.

Through discussion with the council, we have learned that the schedule of works is as follows:

Wed 25 Jan - All Day - Access for residents and businesses only.
Thu 26 Jan - Morning - Closure from Archers to Brick Kiln Lane (i.e. Post Office)
Thu 26 Jan - Afternoon - Closure from Brick Kiln Lane to Atherstone Rd (i.e. Heanley La)
Fri 27 Jan - All Day - Closure from Brick Kiln Lane to Atherstone Rd
Sat 28 Jan - All Day - Access for residents and businesses only.
Sun 29 Jan - All Day - Access for residents and businesses only.
Mon 30 Jan - All Day - Access for residents and businesses only.
Tue 31 Jan - All Day - Access for residents and businesses only.

The planned closures are 24-hour closures and as such will not be lifted in the evenings or at weekends.

We are assured that access for residents will be maintained, albeit with some disruption  throughout the works.

So, for the period from 25th Jan to 31st Jan we must advise all plot holders that access to the allotment site will be limited and that non-residents are unlikely to be granted access through the works, however local residents should still be able to access the site on foot.

UPDATE: Information published on 17 Jan indicates most of the closure and works will be over the weekend on 28/29 Jan. Plot holders are still advised to avoid visiting the site that weekend as access will be difficult.
