Have your say

MOTORISTS are warned to expect delays while part of a city bridge is shut for maintenance work.

A lane on Copnor bridge will close from 10pm to 6am from Saturday for an estimated two weeks.

Temporary traffic lights will allow vehicles to travel in one direction at a time. The work is mostly painting and replacing panels. But it may be rescheduled if the weather is bad.

A drop-in session to discuss the work was due to be held from 6pm to 8pm today in the main hall at St Joseph’s Church Hall in Tangiers Road.
