ROAD closures will come into force on the A338 Salisbury Road in Ringwood from Monday (May 24).

Work is being carried out by Hampshire County Council as part of its Operation Resilience maintenance programme to make the county's roads "more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and heavy traffic".

Carriageway resurfacing works will be taking place on the A338 Salisbury Road, Ringwood from the roundabout under the A31 to a point just south of Snails Lane.

The work is expected to last for seven nights and will see the road temporarily closed between 8pm and 6am each day.

Work will not take place over the Bank Holiday weekend.

More information about the diversion route can be found here.
