Part of a road will be shut for more than a month while improvement work is being carried out.

As part of the Nythe Road junction improvement scheme, R&W Civil Engineering will be closing a section of road at the junction where Nythe Road connects with Oxford Road from tomorrow to June 25.

A borough council spokesperson said: “During the closure, the contractor will be constructing a footpath, installing drainage, and putting in the necessary infrastructure for the new traffic lights.

“There will be a diversion route in place which will be clearly signposted throughout the closure.”
