Roadworks to watch out for in Burton in the coming weeks

It will be another busy week of roadworks in and around Burton as drivers are urged to plan ahead. Temporary traffic lights will again be in place at various locations in the town while work is carried out. All of the work is being carried out according to roadworks website One.network between Monday, September 19 and Sunday, September 25.
