A road in Heaton will be closed from Monday whilst vital works take place.

Shrewsbury Road will be closed for approximately two weeks from Monday, May 30 while resurfacing works take place.

The closure will prohibit all traffic from proceeding on Shrewsbury Road from Chorley New Road to Lincoln Road to allow resurfacing works.

An alternative route for traffic will be via Somerset Road to allow drivers to travel around the area with ease.

To ensure recycling bins are emptied during the works, council officials are asking residents to present them at the nearest accessible point to ensure that they can be emptied on the usual collection days.

Council officials say they want to apologise for any inconvenience the closure may cause.
