Work to remove trees and vegetation around junction 23 of the M1 and the A512 will begin next week.

£25 million is being spent to improve the roads and reduce congestion.

An ecologist will be on site to limit the impact the works have on wildlife.

The work will start on Monday and take around six weeks.

This is a major investment that will unlock future development, boost the local economy and reduce congestion.
