Drivers in and around Biggleswade will have seven National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

> A1, from 9.30am February 3 to 2.30pm February 7, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, between Sandy Roundabout and Tempsford junction. (local authority diversion - Tempsford Road, Sandy Road, Everton Road, Swaden and B1042). Diversion route for local authority works on behalf of Central Bedfordshire Council.

And a further three closures will begin over the next seven days:

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
