A606 Closure for Resurfacing Work

Date Published: 12 September 2019
Road closed

The A606 in Rutland is due to close between Oakham and Whitwell from 16 to 27 September 2019 to allow essential maintenance work to take place.

Resurfacing work is needed along sections of the A606 to protect the road and prevent damage, such as potholes, that can damage vehicles and lead to accidents. 

Work will commence as soon as the closure is in place and requires two weeks to complete. The work cannot be carried out under temporary traffic lights or a single lane closure. 

A planned diversion route for through traffic will be in place via the A6003, A47, A6121 and A1.

Access will also be maintained for vehicles needing to reach Barnsdale Hill. 

From 16 to 20 September access to Barnsdale Hall will be via the A606 from Oakham, with no access from Whitwell. This will be reversed from 23 to 27 September. 

There will be no access to Barnsdale Avenue from the A606 for the duration of the closure. 

The closure will be lifted over the weekend of Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September. This is so that Network Rail can carry out an inspection on Sounding Bridge at Manton (A6003) on Sunday 22 September, which requires its own closure. The A606 closure will then be reinstated on Monday 23 September.
