PART of a popular cycling and walking trail will be closed for three weeks.

The Hayling Billy Trail will be closed south of the Esso car park on Havant Road from November 16.

Repairs are being carried out to areas damaged in last year’s storms.

Timber revetment will be put in to protect eroding clay banks and temporary fencing will be installed to protect users from the drop into the harbour.
