As some of you will have found out for yourselves, the Stratton Park road from the A4421 to Poundon is closed along it complete length not just from the crossroads with Mill Road to Godington.
Despite our meeting with senior people on Friday from both EWR and OCC which confirmed that the road past Stratton Park to the cross roads would be open, it has been closed for repairs to the road which had not formed part of the discussion to date.
This is most annoying as it would seem that no one at the Friday meeting knew that the plan to repair and resurface parts of the entire length of the road were still scheduled for this week. According to the EWR Highways project manager controlling the works on the ground, he hopes that the resurfacing works on the stretch from the cross roads to the A4421 will all be complete this week and the road reopened by the weekend. The road in the other direction to Poundon will be closed for a couple of weeks as previously advised, because they will be installing about 16 passing points as well as undertaking road surface repairs.
Residents in Godington have been informed directly and there is access for all residents, farm vehicles or delivery vehicles. Diversion signs for through traffic will mean that the village sees a temporary increase in traffic.
