The project, part of Streets Ahead, will take three months to complete. Although lane closures will be in place, a lane in each direction will remain open throughout to keep traffic flowing.

Weedon bridge in Carbrook will also benefit from strengthening works, as well as being restored back to its former glory, with work starting on June 6 for five months. A lane will remain open.
