A Stoke-on-Trent viaduct is to be fully repainted under a £1.6m project.

Work on Longton viaduct on King Street is due to start on 27 June and is expected to take until the end of the year to complete.

Network Rail said some road diversions will be required and it was working with the city council to finalise "how the traffic plan needs to be managed".

It added the structure should not need further maintenance for 25 years following the work.
