NIGHT time road works take place in Wisbech when contractors carry out £250,000 of surface and safety improvements on one of the main routes into town.
Cromwell Road, which runs past McDonalds, will be closed overnight from July 15 for approximately three weeks.
The road will be closed from 8pm to 6am between Sandown Road and the A47 roundabout and signed diversions will be set up via the A47 Wisbech Bypass, A1101 Elm High Road to Weasenham Lane and back to Cromwell Road.
Any works required between Weasenham Lane and Sandown Lane will be controlled by lane closures still allowing trafffic to enter and exit the superstores and shoping units.
During the day and at weekends it will be open to traffic subject to speed restrictions due to the temproary road surface and raised ironworks.

Letters and plans are being delivered to residents and businesses in the area this week to warn them of the plans.
Contractors will leave an area of about 200m from New Bridge Lane to CEVA Logistics, outside the old racing stadium, untouched as Tesco has its own work to complete to make carriage alterations.
