Furthermore, upgrade works will continue on Buckie Road level crossing (LX918) which will be incorporated into onsite traffic management.

These activities may result in minor travel delays and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. For public safety, road users should observe all traffic control instructions, signage and VMS boards during this period.
