Newark and Sherwood's motorists will have six road closures to avoid nearby on the National Highways network this week.

And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with drivers facing waits of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:

A1, from 8pm January 29 to 6am March 9, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A52 eastbound and westbound, Saxondale to Barrowby, carriageway closure due to construction works, diversion via National Highways network and local authority network.

And a further five closures will begin over the next two weeks:

A1, from 8pm February 19 to 5am February 20, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 southbound, Balderton to Fernwood, Lane closures for safety repair works.

A46, from 1pm February 22 to 6am February 23, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A46 northbound and southbound, Swinderby to Carholme roundabout, carriageway, lane and layby closures due to drainage works, diversion via National Highways network and local authority network.

A1, from 8pm February 22 to 5am February 23, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A1 northbound, Markham Moor, slip road closure for electrical works, diversion via National Highways network and local authority network.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
