Meanwhile, the county council is also intending to make an order to prohibit motorists from using the A41 northbound slip road leading onto the A4008 Stephenson Way/M1 (junction 5 roundabout) for roadworks.
This order is also due to come into force on November 8 and will remain in place for 18 months, or until the works have been completed.
However, the works will only take place at the times shown on roads at or near the location.
