“Unfortunately we will need to close the road, but the car park should remain open throughout the duration.

“We will aim to complete the works as quickly as possible.”

A diversion route has been put in place for the duration of the road closure.

It will take drivers up to the next junction and back round to access the car park via Rock Street and Short Lane.

Further details about the diversion route are available on the roadworks page of the Northants County Council website, which states delays are likely during the road closure.
