The westbound carriageway between junctions 9 and 7 will shut from 8pm at night until 6am in the morning all this week.

Project manager, Mike Hall said:

"We endeavour to avoid overnight working as far as possible, however we cannot do these works during the day. There may be some disturbance to local residents... but we will of course do our best to minimise this by doing the noisiest work as early as possible during the closure period."
