A WELL-USED country road near Romsey will be closed for a month.

Part of Stanbridge Lane, Awbridge, will be closed from a point 75 metres east of Cooks Lane to Old Salisbury Lane on March 11.

The road will be closed for a period of 1 month or until completion of works.

Diversions will be from the western point of closure, west and north on B3084 Stanbridge and Dunbridge Lane, and east Kimbridge Lane, south on A3057 Stockbridge Road, west on B3084 Old Salisbury Lane to the eastern point of closure.

The closure will be in place to allow safe access for works to connect a fibre optic cable to an Openreach cabinet previously installed.
