A STRETCH of the A483 in Wrexham is closing in both directions tonight - with traffic being diverted through Llangollen. 

The Newbridge bypass (from J1 to Halton roundabout) will be closed from 9pm until 6am on Wednesday. 


Traffic Wales will be carrying out routine cyclic maintenance works. 

Motorists are facing a 12-mile diversion as a result.

Traffic will be diverted via the A5 to Llangollen, and the A539 through Trevor and Acrefair, before rejoining the A483 at Ruabon.
