Information has been received from National Highways to advise that they will be carrying out essential lighting renewal work to the A1307 slip roads at junction 24. Once complete, drivers will benefit from improved lighting as we continue through the winter period.
They plan to complete this work over 10 weeks between Monday 24 January and Wednesday 30 March, working between 8pm and 5am on weeknights only, weather permitting.
