Ashey Road and Green Lane will remain open as normal throughout the works, providing an alternative diversion for motorists.

Island Roads project manager Derek Benfield said:

“Not only are we undertaking this work overnight, it has also been programmed for outside of the main holiday season given that there are camping facilities in this area.

“Though we have made every effort to reduce disruption, it is impossible to undertake improvement work on a major road such as this without causing some inconvenience and we thank motorists in advance for their co-operation.”
