MOTORISTS have been warned of lane closures being in force overnight on the A338 this week.

A temporary single lane closure will be in place on the southbound carriageway of the dual carriageway at Blackwater junction from 9pm tonight until 6am on Friday morning.

On Friday night, single lane closures will also be in force in both directions from 7pm until 6am from Ashley Heath to Blackwater.

Both sets of lane closures are to allow council contractors to carry out a regular series of maintenance work.
