The Highways Agency says the resurfacing work is 'essential to maintain the condition of the road and keep it safe for road users'.

Drivers have faced many recent delays on the A46 with work being carried out on many parts of the road.

The work, which begins on Monday (February 14), will include resurfacing the B4463 approaches to the roundabout, the A46 southbound approach and A46 southbound Stratford link road from the M40 junction 15.

National Highways Project Manager, Ryan Davies, said: “This work is important to ensure we maintain the condition of the road and keep it safe for road users.

“We appreciate that this will mean some road closures which could impact on people’s journeys but we will do this work overnight when we know the roads are quieter and should cause minimum impact.”

A signed diversion route, agreed with the local authority, will be in place during the closures.
