Bath and North East Somerset motorists who are heading out and about to celebrate New Years with friends and family will have two road closures to watch out for this week.

But drivers will be able to take some solace in the fact that both of them are only expected to cause slight delays, of under 10 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures are due to start this week:

A36, from 7pm January 4 to 5am January 5, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A36 Limpley Stoke temporary traffic lights for sign repair.

A4, from 8pm January 4 to 6am January 28, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A4 Bath westbound, lane closure for barrier works.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
