A programme of carriageway resurfacing and road marking works will then take place on High Street, between Barnoldby Road and Ings Lane, and Barnoldby Road, between High Street and Brian Avenue, from Tuesday 1 June.

To allow the works to be carried out safely, parking will be suspended on High Street during the closure hours.

Residents and businesses within the works area have been informed.

Advanced warning signs and a signed diversion route will be in place during the closure.

The programme is subject to change and the works are weather dependent.
