A NUMBER of road closures will be in force across Gwent this week.

There will be disruption on some of the region's busiest roads as stretches close to allow roadworks to take place.

Among those carriageways set to shut are the M4 and the A449.

Overnight closures will hit both roads this week.

These are the closures to plan ahead for:

M4 eastbound, junction 24-23A: There will be an overnight closure on the eastbound carriageway of the M4 between junction 24 for Coldra and junction 23A for Magor. The road will close this evening at 8pm and reopen at 6am on Tuesday, March 2. The closure will allow for roadworks to take place.

The road will be closed each evening between junction 28 for Tredegar Park and junction 24 for Coldra. The nightly closures will begin this evening and 8pm. It will reopen at 6am the following the morning. The closures, for roadworks, will continue each night this week until March 6.
