Tree Removal on A5 affecting Mancetter Roundabout

North Warwickshire


Dear Customer

We recently wrote to you to inform you of some upcoming work along the A5. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our hazardous tree removal work has changed. Please see below for further information.

Our hazardous tree removals along the A5 between Grendon roundabout and Holly Lane roundabout will now take place between 9pm and 6am on Tuesday 2 July, Wednesday 3 July and Tuesday 9 July. During this time, we’ll install lane closures with the use of temporary traffic lights.

On Thursday 4 July and Friday 5 July 2024, between 9pm and 6am, we’ll be removing hazardous trees along the A5 between Holly Lane roundabout and Mancetter roundabout. To carry out this work safely, we’ll fully close the A5 eastbound between Holly Lane roundabout and Mancetter roundabout. We’ll also close the A5 westbound from Mancetter roundabout to the A5/Long Street entry slip junction.

We’ll make every effort to minimise noise at these locations.

During closures, we’ll install the following fully signed diversion routes.

Access for emergency vehicles and frontages will be maintained throughout.

We’ll make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to a minimum. We always aim to work to the programme, however unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions may mean changes.
