Ermine Street will be closed this weekend (October 19-20) as the new link to Brampton Road moves a step closer.

A junction is to be built in Ermine Street to tie in with the £10million road.

The street will be closed both days between 7.30am and 6pm but access to properties and a path for cyclists and pedestrians will remain open. Traffic will be diverted via St Peter's Road, the A141 and Hartford Road.

Project manager Mike Eatock said: "Should there be heavy rain over the weekend, we will have to postpone the road closure and works to the following weekend, October 26-27."
