PART of the A420 between the White Hart junction and Gablecross roundabout will be closed to through traffic overnight on Saturday.

Work needs to be carried out in preparation for planned upgrades to the White Hart roundabout which aim to increase capacity and improve the layout of the busy junction.

The directional sign gantry on the A420 near the exit to the car park of the former Toys R Us will be removed.

This work will begin at 10pm on Saturday and should be complete by 7am on Sunday.

The White Hart scheme is designed to improve capacity of the junction before 8,000 houses are built in the new eastern villages expansion.

It will include a widened south-bound exit sliproad, traffic lights on the roundabout and a new exit sliproad on the northbound carriageway.
