“We understand the inconvenience temporary closures can cause but at times it is necessary to ensure the safety of those working on the carriageway. Our maintenance programme helps to keep our roads reliable and avoids the need for longer term repairs which could lead to greater disruption.”

The spokesperson did not reveal what works were being carried out during the night time closures.
