Stoke Rd Knock Ln Road Closure Diversion

Please note notifications on other websites state that works on Stoke Road will commence in November 2023.  Blisworth Parish Council have checked with Highways and we have been informed that this date has not been confirmed.

Northamptonshire Police Operation Snap

Residents have noted an increase in the volume and weight of the traffic this week along Stoke Road, through the village.   May we ask you, friends and neighbours to take videos, if at all possible, and then post them on the Police website:   This helps to highlight the problem, rather than having just one email from the Blisworth Parish Council.  The Police may be more inclined to act if they get multiple emails from residents.   Please note that it is an offence to video another vehicle while actually driving.  Alternatively, if you could take the registration number and the name of the company etc on the overweight vehicle and notify the Police, they will investigate further.   Blisworth Parish Council have notified the Bridge and Highway Structures Team Leader to alert them to the fact that there is increased and increasing volume of traffic using Stoke Road and an increasing amount of  traffic that contravenes the 3.5 T weight restriction.  The Police have been made aware of this issue and KIER (Highways) agreed to also contact the Police so that they are made aware of the issues with this section of road and the need to enforce the weight restriction.

Subsidence at Stoke Road – Update
Blisworth Parish Council has contacted the Bridge and Highway Structures Team Leader for North Northamptonshire and West Northamptonshire dealing with the issue of subsidence at Stoke Road.  Highways have revised their initial plan for works at Stoke Road and are in talks with the Canal and River Trust and WNC.  Bliswoth Parish Council have alerted them to the fact that the road has deteriorated and that the hole has both widened and deepened and that it is impossible to pass.  Additionally the depth of the hole steers cars into the middle of the road into oncoming traffic. Highways have agreed to send out an engineer to check the condition of the road again this week (w/c 06/03/2023).
They have also agreed to send an updated plan and report on the condition of the road for residents, which will be posted on this website as soon as it is received.
Please note Blisworth Parish Council had already arranged a meeting with representatives of Highways to discuss the many traffic and road issues within Blisworth village and a major concern is the condition of Stoke Road and the impact of increased and increasing traffic along this route.
Highways have contacted Blisworth Parish Council with the following information:  They state that they have sent an engineer (w/c 06/03/2023) who has confirmed that:
‘while it may seem to have deteriorated, the settlement (at Stoke Road, Blisworth) is the same as previously inspected.’
They have agreed to send a Traffic Management contractor to see what additional signage can be installed to deter overweight vehicles from accessing Stoke Road from the direction of Shutlanger etc.   Please read the Highways Blisworth Stoke Road update March 2023 for details of their plans and current status.
