It means traffic will be diverted through Berwick town centre, while several junctions leading to the A1 will be closed.

The A1 will remain open during the day although the laybys will be closed for the duration of the work.

Highways England project manager Steve Bishop said: “The work we are carrying out now will also extend the life of the existing carriageway and prevent the need for further disruption in the years to come. We are working with local businesses and the bus companies to minimise disruption and I would like to thank drivers in advance for their patience.”
