MAJOR resurfacing works are due to be carried out in Barnsley this weekend.

The works, on the A628 Barnsley Road between Hoylandswaine roundabout and the railway bridge in Penistone, are planned to start on Saturday at 7pm and will be completed by the end of the weekend.

A road closure will be in place, with traffic being diverted via Halifax Road and Huddersfield Road and vice versa. This diversion will be signed.

Access to properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the works and every effort will be made to keep any disruption to a minimum.
