The works are to complete the bridge hoarding, and once they are complete the A4421 will reopen as normal.

A spokesman for HS2 Ltd said: "Due to these finishing works requiring large plant and machinery, we are required to close this section of road until they are complete. This is for the safety of road users and our staff. To reduce the inconvenience to road users, this closure will take place overnight.

"We will work to open the roads to reduce disruption as soon as possible."
