However Highways England said today that because of work being carried out elsewhere on the roads network they have now been put back until November.

A spokesman said the work due to take place was not safety critical and routine maintenance only, but added: "We will endeavour to complete this work as soon as possible."

The works are now scheduled to take place between November 18-20 in the eastbound lane, and November 21-23 for westbound.

Closure times will be between 9pm and 5am. Diversions will be in place.
