An alternative route, via King Street,High Street,Smithfield Road,New Road, and Queen Street, will be in place.

Another road closure starting on Wednesday is on the A49.

The trunk route from Prees Green to Preston Brockhurst will be shut between 8pm and 6am for three nights from November 8.

The closure is required for council workers to carry out highways repairs safely.

An alternative route via the A49, A41, A53, and A49 will be signposted.
