Night closures on the A46 until August


Parts of the A46 near Kenilworth and Warwick will be closed at night starting tonight (Monday July 18) until Wednesday August 10 for urgent maintenance works.

The section of road in both directions between junction 15 of the M40 and the A452 interchange near Kenilworth will be closed every night from 8pm to 6am so the road surface can be repaired.

A spokesman for Warwickshire County Council said: “The urgent patch repairs are only at locations where the carriageway has either already failed and has had emergency temporary repairs, is likely to fail in the short term as it shows elevated signs of distress, or will not hold structure over the winter maintenance period.

“All traffic management options were explored, however because the nature of the road and required repairs it is not safe to complete the works under lane closures as there would be no safety zone from the planed carriageway section to the open live lane.

“Therefore the only traffic management arrangement to complete the works is a full closure of the A46.”
