Road closures have begun at Whittingham Lane between 9.30am to 3.30pm from Tuesday (2 May) to Saturday (6 May),
This is to allow the new road layout to be completed.
Along the central road section the southbound carriageway has now had the first tarmac laid and the kerb lines are now in place. Further tarmac will be laid over the next few weeks.
The bypass is due to open in August this year.
