Motorists travelling to celebrate Christmas could face disruption as a raft of roadworks are put in place on major roads across Yorkshire.

The following roadworks by Highways England will be in place from Monday (December 21) until December 27, but could change because of weather conditions.

Highways chiefs said they aim to keep disruption to a minimum during the works.

There will be narrow lanes and a 30mph speed limit in place until a project to add an extra lane to the roundabout at the junction is completed in autumn 2016.
