Highways England project manager Peter Gee said: “This is routine work to tackle wear and tear along the carriageway. To minimise any inconvenience to drivers the carriageway will remain open at all times during the day with two lanes running.

“During the overnight work, one or two lanes will be open apart from a couple of overnight carriageway closures when we are resurfacing.”
