Drivers are facing almost three weeks of closures on the Ashby by-pass next month.

The route between Discovery Way and Smisby Road is to be closed at night from October 12 onwards.

Leicestershire County Council Highways department says the by-pass will be closed daily from 20:00 to 05:00.

It adds that it will be 18 nights before motorists can use the route overnight again,

The closure is due to public safety while final carriageway resurfacing work on the new roundabout, at the Taylor Wimpey and Bloor Homes' Money Hill development, is carried out,

Night traffic will be facing a long diversion as a result.

The proposed alternative diversion route will be via: A511, Ashby/Smisby/Boundary/Woodville; A511 High Street, A514 Swadlincote Road, Woodville; Derby Road, Civic Way, William Nadin Way, Cadely Hill Road, Swadlincote; A444 Burton Road, High Cross, Mount Pleasant Road, Castle Greasley; Burton Road, Main Street, Acresford Road, Overseal; Burton Road, Netherseal/Acresford/Stretton en le Field; A42 J11 to J13; and vice versa.
