“Once work is complete, road users will quickly realise the long term benefits from the new road surface along the stretch.”

The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and Roads Service will keep the public informed of any change. 

Roads Service 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 may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
