A busy Southampton road is to be closed next month for road works.

Woodmill Lane in Bitterne Park is set to be closed for two weeks while the works are carried out.

The closure will begin on Thursday, March 14, until Friday, March 29, and a diversion is set to be put in place.

For residents travelling into the city from Bitterne Park, the diversion will take residents off of Woodmill Lane and onto Wessex Lane.

The road works are likely to have impact on residents of Bitterne, Swaythling, Mansbridge and Stoneham.

This comes after several major roadworks projects have led to delays across the city, including the ring road in the city centre and Spring Road.
