Overnight roadworks are set to start in a Buckinghamshire town centre. 

Part of Desborough Road will shut for resurfacing works, Buckinghamshire Council confirmed.

The section of road from the Westbourne Street junction up to Desborough Avenue roundabout will get a fresh new surface.  

Roadworks are set to start today (December 7), with a road closure in place between 10pm and 6am until Saturday, December 9.

Buckinghamshire Council said the works are "still programmed to take place and access will be granted for residents and businesses when safe to do so." 

The busy road, which is lined with shops, takeaways and cafes, has some potholes.

Road markings have also faded “significantly,” allowing drivers to dispute taking tickets, a resident said on FixMyStreet online tool designed for reporting problems affecting streets and roads. 

The road also has markings indicating it is used by cyclists, but many of the markings have faded.
