Work has begun to repair and resurface a section of Coventry's ring road.

Coventry City Council said the work will cover about a quarter of the route and take four weeks to complete.

A council spokesman said it will be undertaken overnight between 19:00 and 06:00 BST to avoid disruption during the day and at peak hours.

Diversions will be in place but pedestrian access on the subways and footbridges will not be affected by the work.

Councillor Lindsley Harvard, cabinet member for city services, said: "I hope people will bear with us while this work is under way.

"The ring road is a fantastic asset for our city but we need to do this resurfacing ahead of the winter to avoid frost doing real damage.

"Other council teams will go in while the closures are on to repair lights, weed and generally clean up so I hope everyone will see a real difference."
