BASINGSTOKE and Deane's motorists will have two road closures to avoid nearby on the National Highways network next week. 

And they are expected to cause delays of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures are due to start over the next two weeks:

• A303, from 8pm February 22 to 6am February 23, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A34 northbound and southbound, M3, junction 9 to Bullington Cross, carriageway closure for Scottish and Southern Power works, diversion via National Highways and local authority network.

• M3, from 8pm February 22 to 5am February 23, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M3 southbound, junction 9, slip road and lane closures for signage work.

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