MOTORISTS are warned to expect delays over the weekend due to a tunnel closure.

The Hindhead Tunnel on the A3 will be shut in both directions on Saturday night for maintenance work.

It means the A3 will be closed between Stag Hill and Longmoor between 9pm and 9am.

A fully signed diversion will be in place via the A31 and A325.

Road users are advised to plan their journey before they set out and to leave extra time if possible.
