A major road between Sheffield and Manchester will be closed overnight for four days next week for roadworks.

The A628 Woodhead Pass near Sheffield and Barnsley will be closed between 8pm and 6am Monday to Thursday from November 16 to allow the work to take place.

Contractors for Highways England will be undertaking essential resurfacing work between the A616 Flouch Roundabout and the A57 Gun Inn junction.

As part of the scheme reflective road studs will be replaced and road markings will be repainted along the 14 mile stretch of road.

Highways England project manager Tim Calvert said: “This is essential maintenance work and we need to close the A628 overnight when traffic levels are at their lowest.”
