MOTORISTS are being warned to expect overnight closures on the A69 at Hexham.

Work by Highways England to redesign the Bridge End roundabout as part of a multi-million pound scheme to improve the road is set to start on Monday.

The work will see a tunnel constructed underneath the junction to ensure motorists not turning left into Hexham don't have to stop mid-journey.

Highways England was set to start work on a flyover at the Styford roundabout, at Corbridge, but announced recently it had put the scheme on hold.
