Resurfacing, bridge repair work and vegetation clearance will see roads closed across the region over the coming week.

Highways England has released a summary of work which will take place from today until Sunday April 22.

Work will continue at Thickthorn roundabout as Highways England carries out extensive surveys of the road network. Work on the road will generally occur overnight, with working hours from 8pm to 6am and clearly signed diversions will be in place for motorists when road closures are necessary.

And work continues until Friday on the A47 Pullover and Hardwick roundabouts to renew road surfacing, pavements, signage, markings, remove vegetation and install high friction surfacing.
