Motorists warned on road closures

MOTORISTS in the area should be on the lookout for roadworks taking place over the coming week.

Edinburgh Road in Holytown will be closed from Monday, August 15, to Friday, August 19.

The area affected will be from the roundabout junction with the A723/Bo’ness Road north eastwards for a distance of around 50 metres.

It will mean a diversion for motorists through Newarthill and New Stevenston.

Meanwhile Old Edinburgh Road in Viewpark will be closed on Sunday, from the junction with Columba Court to the junction with West Avenue. A diversion will be in place there too.
