Work starts on Monday at the junction of St Andrew's Road and Spencer Bridge Road

The schedule includes a full closure of the junction overnight for one week between April 19 and April 23.

A KeirWSP spokesman said: "When programming works such as these, we consider the impact on all pedestrians and road users and plan our works to minimise disruption.

"We do understand the closures will be inconvenient but works can only be completed safely and efficiently with this in place.

"Access to businesses and to the train station will be maintained at all times but please allow extra time for your journey as there may be delays.

"Marshals will be on site to help pedestrians and temporary push button crossing points will be in place.

"We hope any inconvenience will be tolerated for the duration of the works as this scheme will significantly improve the area."
