CLOSURES will be enforced along the A127 for almost two weeks while repairs are carried out to the busy dual carriageway.

The London-bound carriageway, between Pound Lane in north Benfleet and the A132 in Basildon, will be closed off to motorists while Essex County Council resurfaces the road.

The closures will be in force between 9pm and 5am until January 24.

The repairs are being conducted to improve skid-resistance and smooth out the uneven road surface after a recent survey found the carriageway to be in a poor condition.
