A WARNING has been issued ahead of an upcoming road closure in Malmesbury.

Part of St Mary's Lane in Malmesbury - from its junction with Gloucester Road for approximately 20 meters west - will be closed on Thursday, February 8 and Friday, February 9 to allow Wessex Water to carry out service repairs.

Wiltshire Council has said the proposed diversion route - via Gloucester Road, St Mary's Street and the unaffected length St Mary's Lane - will be clearly indicated by traffic signs.

Access will be maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works.
