A BUSY Horwich road will be closed for a large part of today.

De Havilland Way will be closed between 9am and 3.30pm and after 6pm.

It is closed to allow Environmental Cleansing at Bolton Council carry out general highway maintenance and routine cleaning work.

The council estimates that the work will cause a high level of traffic disruption so has urged people to plan their journeys.
