THE southbound carriageway of Bournemouth's Spur Road is back to two lanes.

Overnight closures this week have seen the whole of the A338 shut between Cooper Dean and Ashley Heath while the road has been surfaced.

From 6am this morning, there are two lanes southbound from the Blackwater junction to the Cooper Dean roundabout.

However, there will be "occasional off-peak" southbound lane closures between 9am and 4pm following the bank holiday weekend.

"The Cooper Dean off slip will be in operation, however there are still works in the area which prevents us from opening the entire length of the widened slip," the council said.
