National Highways statement
A statement from National Highways read: “The condition of the road surface has deteriorated, exacerbated by the winter weather conditions, resulting in a number of large potholes along the hard shoulder, which is currently being used as a running lane during works to upgrade the central reservation barrier.
“During the closures, clearly-signed diversions will be in place.”
