Works will begin from about 18:30 BST with the possibility of running through to the early hours of the morning.

There will be road closures and diversions in place.

Dillwyn Street and Westway will be closed northbound between the bus station and Kingsway on 19, 20 and 21 October.

Westway will then be closed southbound between Kingsway and the bus station on 24, 25 and 26 October.
