A ROAD near Ludlow is to close for three monthsdue to bridge repairs.

Bridge deck replacement works will take place to Parsons Pole Bridge in Brampton Bryan from Tuesday (May 30).

It is estimated to take 12 weeks for the work to be completed.

The closure will be from the C1001 from the A4113 to the River Teme, 50 metres either side of Parsons Pole Bridge.

Herefordshire Council say the alternative route from those affected is via the C1001 on to the A4113 and vice versa.
