A1 closed overnight for resurfacing work
This needs wide knowledge given that the A1 (a.k.a. The Great North Road) is such a major road.
The Highways Agency said the stretch between Fenwick and West Mains crossroads will be closed between 20:00 and 06:00 GMT.
Traffic lights and diversions will be in place while the work is carried out.
The Agency said the work was essential and apologised for the inconvenience to motorists. No date for the completion of the resurfacing has been given.

But this is a BBC story in 2015 and it’s not April the 1st.
