A1 section to be closed overnight in North Yorkshire

One of the busiest roads in North Yorkshire will be closed to traffic overnight on Saturday.

The stretch of the A1 between Scotch Corner and Leeming will be closed in both directions until Sunday.

The work is part of a £380m scheme to upgrade 12 miles of the A1 between Leeming and Barton to motorway standard.

Highways Agency officials said the road would close at 20:00 BST on Saturday and open at 06:00 on Sunday.
