Project information

Overview

Our work on the A5 will include resurfacing, renewing road studs, refreshing the line markings on the road and other safety improvements. The work here is essential, will extend the life of the road and make journeys safer for motorists. 

We will be using these closures to bring together as much work on the road as possible, preventing the need for further closures in the near future.

The resurfacing work will improve the safety of the road surface, as well as renewing road markings and road studs.
