A road in Bridport will be closed for five days for roadworks.

Lower Walditch Lane, which connects Bridport to the village of Walditch, will be closed between its junction with Walditch Road and its junction with Howard Road, a distance of approximately 700 metres.

The closure will be taking place from 8.30am to 5pm starting Friday, March 10 and is expected to be completed on Tuesday, March 14.

The roadworks are to allow Openreach safe access to replace a frame and cover.

An alternative route using Walditch Road will be signposted.

For further information about the work being undertaken, call Openreach on 07368 977325.
