A diversions in place via Seaborough Through Lane and Hewish Lane.

Another road closure is set for Seaborough Through Lane the following week from 9.30am on Monday, March 18 until 3pm on Friday, March 22

This is to allow Openreach to lay duct between the junction with Seaborough Manor Farm Lane and the entrance to Hillside Farm

Traffic will be diverted via Seaborough Through Lane and Hewish Lane.

Openreach and National Grid will publicise the road closures by placing information boards on the road to inform the travelling public of the works, carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works, and signpost a diversion route using the local road network.
