The latest round of roadworks on Eastway will continue for three months

The route is currently the site of a three-month roadworks programme which includes creating a new roundabout, widening the road and installing new puiffin and toucan crossings to service new housing developments next to the route.

However signs at the site now state that a section of the road will be closed completely from 6pm to 7am on Friday, January 25, Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27.
