The A605 will be temporarily blocked on six occasions for approximately 10 minutes as the beams are transported.

The first will be moved at approximately 2pm with the final beam to be moved by around 7pm. The beam lifts are scheduled to take place from 3pm to 8pm.

There will be manual traffic management using stop-go signs to ensure as little disruption caused as possible.
