The M48 Severn Bridge will again be closed overnight.

It will be closed westbound from 7pm today (Tuesday, October 23) until 6am tomorrow to allow essential resurfacing work to take place.

A diversion will be in place via the M4 Prince of Wales Bridge but Highways England have advised drivers to allow extra time for their journey.

The closure is the fourth on the bridge in the last fortnight.

It was closed eastbound for much of last weekend for maintenance work and strong winds forced a temporary closure on October 12.

The bridge was also closed overnight on October 11 for more resurfacing work on the westbound carriageway.
