Diversionary routes will be put in place and will be clearly signposted. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times. While the hours of work will be between 7pm and 6am, they may be of shorter duration depending on the specific works carried out each day. 

The council and its main contractor Walters UK acknowledge these closures will cause disruption to the travelling public, as well as to residents and businesses and thank all concerned for their ongoing patience while these works are carried out.

A number of bus services may be affected by these road closures. Up to date information on routes and services affected will be available on our bus timetables section.
