The closures will be between 8pm and 6am and signs will be used to indicate which nights they will be in place. The work will be on the eastbound carriageway for the first six nights and on the westbound for the remaining four nights.

Highways England project manager Maduabuchi Ani said:

The work includes the replacement of the existing road surface with a new thin wearing surface to provide a quieter and smoother ride. The scheme will minimise the need for future repairs and deliver the best possible solution in terms of whole life cost and value for money.

We will be carrying out the work overnight to minimise disruption for road users. The resurfacing will be weather dependent and may be subject to changes.

  • A303 Westbound – Traffic to be diverted from the A303 / A360 Longbarrow Junction to travel South on the A360 then Southwest on The Avenue then West on the A30 and then North on the A350 to re-join the A303 Westbound
