The work to facilitate widening of the carriageway on this stretch of the road will result in some disruption to overnight traffic.

The road closure will commence at 10.00 pm on Monday 17 July 2017 and the road will reopen to traffic on Tuesday 18 July at 6.00 am.  The closure will be in place again on Tuesday night from 10.00 pm until 6.00 am on Wednesday 19 July 2017.

Advanced warning signage for the closure will be provided and diversion routes will be signed as necessary.

DfI Roads and the A6 contractor has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however, motorists should be aware that some delays should be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
