Warning to drivers over A46 bridge works

Motorists have been warned of a closure on the A46 in Nottinghamshire to allow a new bridge to be lifted into place as part of improvement works.

The widening of the road began in June 2009.

The A46 will be closed this weekend at Flintham for the installation of a pedestrian and bridleway bridge.

The work to make the 17-mile (28km) stretch between Newark and Widmerpool a dual carriageway will provide a new link between the A1 and M1.

The Highways Agency said diversions would be put in place.
