A MAIN road on Portland will be closed for a day so work can be carried out.

Dorset Council says Weston Road will be closed in the area opposite Pound Piece on Monday, November 18.

This is for maintenance work and to upgrade the crossing. Road closures will be in place from 9am to 4pm with drivers diverted via Easton and down Southwell Road.

A spokesman for Dorset Council said: “To enable us to carry out maintenance work, we plan to close Weston Road on Monday, November 18. The road will be closed between the hours of 9am and 4pm. We will be repairing sections of the road and diversions will be in place.”
