Busy Dorset bridge closes for four days

A busy bridge linking two Dorset towns is to close for four days to allow repairs to be completed.

Tuckton Bridge, linking Christchurch and the Southbourne area of Bournemouth, will be closed from Tuesday to allow the replacement of the road surface either side of the bridge.

Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to continue using the crossing.

Bournemouth Borough Council said the work was taking place in the school holidays when traffic was lighter.
