Tunstall Road in Biddulph is due to be closed in November, with work continuing to create access to Biddulph's upcoming Aldi supermarket.
Biddulph Nub News reported last month how nine weeks of roadworks were scheduled for Tunstall Road as part of the preparations for the supermarket.
The roadworks began on 20th September and involve the construction of a new fourth exit for the roundabout which also connects to St John's Road. The new exit will provide access onto the Aldi supermarket site.
However, it has now been confirmed that the road will be closed overnight for several days in November.
The section of Tunstall Road from the junction with Newpool Road to the Meadows Way roundabout will be closed from 8:30pm - 5:30am, starting on 8th November.
It is anticipated that the works will be finished and road reopened on 12th November.
The only vehicles that will be allowed down the road during these times are vehicles involved in the roadworks, and emergency vehicles.
Pedestrian access will still be available.
Biddulph Nub News reported previously how Aldi is now aiming for a November opening date after pushing back its original opening date of 21st October.
On the opening day, a 'Grand Opening' ceremony will be held including the cutting of a ribbon to mark the opening of the supermarket, although it has not yet been confirmed who will be cutting the ribbon, with Aldi saying they will provide more details around two weeks before the opening date.
