"For everyone's safety, we need to close the junction where the A334 meets Reading Room Lane and Outlands lane.

"Motorists will be unable to move through this junction from any direction. Local signed diversions will be in place.

"We know this is a busy junction, so will be working as quickly as possible to complete repairs, however at this stage, it's still too early to say how long this will take."
