A339 Newtown Road in Newbury closed for roadworks today
THE A339 Newtown Road in Newbury is closed until 7pm tonight (Saturday) in both directions.
This is to allow Volker Highways to widen the carriageway on behalf of West Berkshire Council.
The road is to close at its junctions with the Pinchington Lane Roundabout, near Newbury Retail Park and Tesco, and the Swan Roundabout at Newtown.
The stretch of road affected runs past St Gabriel's School and the Newbury household waste and recycling centre.
The closure is part of ongoing roadworks along that stretch of road, where a new road is being created into Highwood Copse Primary School.
Drivers are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys.
