Monday - Thursday nights – 22:00 to 05:30 Friday nights – 23:00 to 06:00 Saturday nights – 22:00 to 06:00 Sunday nights – 22:30 to 05:30 The Order would come into force on 9 September 2017 and have a maximum duration of eighteen months.

The temporary closures and diversion routes would be clearly indicated by traffic signs when they are in operation during the works period.
