A SERIES of overnight closures are taking place on the A31 between St Leonards and Trickett’s Cross.

The eastbound carriageway will be fully closed from the A347 Palmersford Roundabout to the Woolsbridge Roundabout between 9pm and 6am on Monday to Friday only.

The closures are to allow Kier Highways, on behalf of Highways England, to carry out resurfacing.

The work started on March 6 and is due to be completed by March 17.

In addition, the eastbound and westbound carriageways between Palmersford Roundabout and Boundary Lane Roundabout will also be closed for two nights to allow Azalea Roundabout to be treated.

During the closures, a clearly signed diversion will be in place via the A347, B3073 and A338 to Ashley Heath.

Access will be maintained for residents whose access id directly off the A31 and for emergency service vehicles only.
