Barnet’s motorists will have two road closures to avoid nearby on the National Highways network this week.

But the news isn’t too bad, with both of them only expected to cause slight delays, of less than 10 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures are due to start over the next two weeks:
