Nottinghamshire Council is set to start major road surface improvement works on the A38 in Sutton next week.

The scheme, which will be carried out by highways contractor Via East Midlands on behalf of the council, will take place overnight over three weeks, starting on Monday, September 4.

The first phase of works will take place on the eastbound carriageway, stretching from the border with Derbyshire to The Snipe pub, from September 4-14.

The works have been scheduled to take place between 8pm and 6am each night to minimise disruption to road users in the area.

The A38 will be closed one-way overnight while the works take place, with diversion routes via the M1, A608, A611 and A617.
