The A46 north of Bath is to close overnight for the next three weeks from today for more resurfacing work along the road.
The road will be closed from this evening, between 8pm and 6am every night from Mondays to Saturdays until 17th May.
It will be closed between the Cold Ashton roundabout and the M4, J18 at Tormarton.
The work is to include resurfacing of the road as well as replacement of road studs and white lines along the route.
A spokesperson for the Highways Agency said: “As well as record increases in road improvements we’re also investing in keeping our roads properly maintained and safe for road users.
“We have planned this work exceedingly carefully when traffic flows are at their lowest to ensure it causes the least disruption to road users.”
The resurfacing work will not be taking place during weekends, and will be suspended from Thursday 8th May – 12th May for the Badminton Horse Trials.
The disruption comes as Bath’s residents endure a number of road closures across the city.
St John’s Road has been closed from the junction of Bathwick Street for five weeks to allow for the diversion of an underground sewer.
Bathwick Hill is to remain closed until Wednesday to allow for the Council to complete resurfacing work which was hampered by recent weather conditions.
