Calderdale Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Barry Collins, said: "This is a busy route and is well used by traffic using the motorway. Unfortunately the road surface has become worn and needs replacing.

"To ensure we can complete these essential repairs safely but with minimal disruption, we've scheduled the work to take place overnight and only during the week, when the road is usually quieter."
