Weston-super-Mare's Locking Moor Road will be closed for three days from today (Monday) so a 'dip' in the carriageway can be investigated.

The bridge, which goes from the Borough Arms pub across to Maltlands, connects two of the town’s main routes – Locking Road and the A370.

North Somerset Council’s deputy leader and executive member for highways, Elfan Ap Rees, said: “The investigation will involve us excavating part of the road so we can understand what has caused the road to drop.”

The road will be closed from 9.30am until 3.30pm each day and a diversion is in place via Locking Road, Drove Road and Marchfields Way.

Drainage work will take place too, at a total cost of £10,000.
