Drivers warned of weekend motorway closure

The bridge repairs included replacing the existing paint system and refurbishing the structure's bearings.

It is the fifth in a series of weekend and overnight closures, with the work expected to be completed by the end of July.

The same stretch of motorway will also be closed overnight from Monday 20 to Thursday 23 May and Tuesday 28 May to Friday 31 May.

Mr Axford advised people to plan "accordingly" and check the National Highways website and social media channels for updates.
