Resurfacing work is due to take place at Junction 20 of the M1 near Lutterworth next week, with overnight closures scheduled.
The roundabout at the junction with the M1 will be closed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 8th, 9th,and 10th July, and then the following weekend of the 15th, 16th and 17th July.
Work will start at 8pm and will continue until 6am, the exception being on the Friday night when work will start at 10pm.
The resurfacing and maintenance work is essential to maintain one of Leicestershire’s busiest stretch of roads and to keep the county moving, say Leicestershire County Council, who are organising the work. It is being done overnight to minimise any disruption to travel.
Councillor Ozzy O’ Shea, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “This work is part of our wider package of road resurfacing.
“It’s been scheduled to cause the least disruption to motorists as possible and will help us continue to improve our road network.”
