After being postponed from January, roadworks on the Mereway in Northampton will now take place from tonight (Friday) night.

It means from 8pm Friday all the way through until at least 6pm Sunday the westbound Mereway (ie from Queen Eleanor Rbt towards Tesco) will be shut (eastbound open, but only with a single lane).

The entire Mereway will be shut from Sunday night til 6am Monday.

Then they'll be more works on and off through until May.

The County Council say all this will help improve traffic safety and vehicle flow on the town’s ring-road.

The £2.7m scheme is party funded by Police Commissioner.
