PUBLISHED: 07:00 25 June 2015
A MAJOR road along Weston's seafront could be closed for more than a week while gasworks are being carried out by a private contractor.
The works are taking place by the traffic lights outside the Grand Pier in Royal Parade and in front of the lawns in Marine Parade.
Work is expected to continue until July 3 and traffic delays are likely to occur as a result.
The gas work is being undertaken by a private contractor for the Beach Café by the Grand Pier.
The road was closed on Monday.
North Somerset Council has put diversion signs in place.
On Tuesday, the council put up additional signs to inform people that businesses in the area are open as usual.
The contractor has issued businesses and residents close to the affected area area with letters about the closure.
