Overnight road closures are planned around Wellingborough Road and St Edmiund's Street for the next two weeks.

The work around Wellingborough Road and St Edmunds Road will complete phase one of the £1.8million improvement project.

HIghways chiefs warn resurfacing will mean some nightly road closures from 8pm to 6am starting on Monday January 13 until Thursday January 23.

Work started in October to improve the north-south link, one of the main access routes to and from Northampton General Hospital.
