National Highways have released data showing a large amount of road closures taking place this week, with drivers advised to avoid those routes whilst the works go ahead.

Closures are taking place across the county.

The planned road closures are split into categories of how long the delays are expected to be, and these are 'up to 10 minutes', and 'between 10 and 30 minutes.'

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
