A road in Hawkwell will be closed for five nights later this summer while work on installing new traffic lights take place.

Roadworks will be set up along Rectory Road at the railway bridge as part of the project.

Temporary traffic lights will be set up in the daytime but the road will be closed overnight.

Access will only be provided for pedestrians and emergency vehicles during the closures.

Drivers will be diverted down Hall Road and Ashingdon Road during the closure, though access will remain for residents living on Rectory Road.
