Two Southampton roads are due to close today for repairs with motorists diverted elsewhere. 

Defect repairs will be carried out on the carriageway along Arthur Road. 

The work begins at 7am and will last until 5.30pm. 

Meanwhile, carriageway repairs mean that Portswood Road is closed from 7pm until 6am tomorrow morning. 

This will take place at the junction with Thomas Lewis Way. 

Diversion routes will be in place and motorists have been told to plan journeys in advance.
