Drivers are to be hit with four months of roadworks as changes are made to Maesbury Junction in Oswestry.

The work, which starts on Monday, March 5, will see the notorious junction with the A483 have traffic lights installed as part of a series of improvements by Highways England.

It follows a series of accidents over the years, many of which were fatal, while others left people with serious injuries.

The roadworks will see the A483 itself remain open, but under two-way signals for 24 hours a day for the duration of the works.

The A483 and Maesbury Road northbound junction will have a diversion in place via Maes-Y-Clawedd and the B4579.

The A483 and Maesbury Road southbound junction will also have a diversion in place, via the A5 and the B4396.

Both the junctions will be closed from Monday.

The roadworks are due to finished on July 15.
