WORK on a busy Southampton road is set to stop for Christmas.

Southampton City Council announced today that work on the Northern Ring Road are mostly complete.

Teams are off-site from today and work will continue in the New Year.

Work left to complete includes installing the charging points on Brunswick Place and undertake other minor works.

Work has already been completed at Charlotte Place roundabout to add in an extra lane at the East Park Terrace junction.

This is expected to increase capacity and create a safer lane arrangement.
