ROAD users are being advised of a slip road closure at Acton over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Cadent is replacing ageing gas mains with tough new pipes and Friary Road will be temporarily closed at its junction with the A40 Western Avenue.

The closure is scheduled to be from 8pm on Friday, August 23. Engineers will be working overnight to ensure the job is completed as promptly as possible.

Signed diversions will be in place via Rosebank Way, York Road and Leamington Park.

Currently, it is planned to complete the work on Sunday, August 25.

Work has been scheduled for the school holidays when roads are generally quieter.
