Contractors for Yorkshire Water will be carrying out essential repairs to the water main which supplies water to 9,000 people in the surrounding area, from 8pm on Friday 24 June 2016 until 6am on Tuesday 28 June 2016.
The roundabout and all approaches will be reduced to a single lane so that work can be carried out safely.
