The closure is to enable Volker Highways to carry out works within the Sandleford A339 Scheme on behalf of West Berkshire Council.

The closure will also be in place throughout the weekend, from 7am on Saturday (October 23) until 7pm on Sunday (October 24).

This is to allow for the resurfacing of the northbound lanes, as well as laying new road markings and cat's eyes.

There will be a diversion in place along the A34 for the entire duration of the closures.

There will be additional overnight closures on the same stretch of road between Monday (October 25) at 7pm through to Tuesday (October 26) at 5.30am.

The roadworks along this stretch of road are due to be completed in November.

The A339 southbound, adjacent to Newbury Retail Park, will also see lane closures that will cause potential delays until November 7.

Further along the A339, the Basingstoke Road will be closed on weekdays until October 29 between 8pm and 6am each night.

The closure will be between its junction with the A339 Basingstoke Road and Albany Road roundabout and its junction with A339 Basingstoke Road and Sandleford Roundabout.

This is to allow for the felling of trees suffering with Ash dieback disease.

Residential access will be maintained throughout and the diversion through Burys Bank Road will be signed on site.

There will be another diversion route for HGV drivers along the Aldermaston Road stretch of the A340.
