BUILDING works will close a road in Rodbourne for nine nights.

Neighbours along Rodbourne Road have been notified of the temporary closure. While a six-month period has been advertised, the council anticipates a much shorter period of disruption.

It says it expects the closure will be in force between 8pm-6am from September 23 until October 2. 

The section of the road allowing access to Redcliffe Street and Dean Street will be closed off for works on a nearby building, which is thought to be The Pattern Store.

Traffic will be diverted via Great Western Way while the work is being carried out.
