Delays to journeys will range from ten minutes and half an hour

Over the next week National Highways will be managing six road or lane closures around the county, with at least two more planned for early October.

The roadworks taking place over the next few days are expected to cause minor delays of no more than 10 minutes, while one planned for the beginning of next month could delay drivers by up to half an hour.

This latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that ongoing works are in place at two locations across the county.

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