Overnight improvement work on the A46 at Alcester, Warwickshire, will take place from Monday 9 June to Wednesday 25 June.


The work between Wixford overbridge and the Stratford Road junction includes resurfacing, reinstatement of road markings and installation of tactile paving at the bridleway crossing on the A46/A435 Oversley Mill roundabout.

It will be carried out in three phases, all involving full closures of the A46 from 8pm to 6am Mondays to Fridays.
