PART of Rownhams Lane is to be closed for nearby roadworks for five nights.

Rownhams Lane north of its junction with Routs Way will be closed from July 30 for five nights between 8pm and 5am.

The closure is in place to allow access for workmen to continue carriageway surfacing.

A diversion is listed via Bakers Drove, Southampton Road, Luzborough Lane and Botley Road.

Though it is expected to last for five nights, an exact date is not confirmed.

Reasonable access to adjoining properties will be maintained throughout the closure.
