Leicestershire County Council is taking the measure to resurface the road service, with work starting on Sunday.

However, Nottingham Road will be open to all vehicles outside of these times.

A spokesperson for County Hall said: “To enable our contractors to safely carry out the works we will need to temporarily close the A606 Nottingham Road in phases.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and would appreciate the understanding of residents and drivers as we work to improve our county’s roads.”

A signed diversion route will be in operation while the road is closed.

Sunday October 3 (7.30am - 5pm) - from Pera Business Park to Clumber Street junction.
