On April 28, Openreach will be undertaking works along the B3254 between Tremarsh and Ladycross between 7.30am and 6pm.  

The closure, which stretches less than a mile in length, will see drivers diverted along a designated route and travel a total of 32.3 miles, as well as adding a further 50 minutes to journey times.
