DRIVERS and villagers face three more weekends of overnight closures on a busy Ribble Valley road.
Network Rail is carrying out minor repairs and repainting the rail bridge over Whalley New Road, Langho.
Temporary traffic lights have been controlling single-line traffic during the day since mid-January, and full road closures have been scheduled over four weekends, starting last weekend, from midnight until 5am on Saturdays and Sundays.
Traffic in both directions is being diverted via Ribchester Road, Clayton-le-Dale, Salesbury, and Longsight Road,
Network Rail says the work will help to reduce the need for maintenance on the bridge over the next 25 years.
A spokesman said: “The works form part of a government-funded national programme to enhance rail structures within local communities.
“A letter informing local residents of the works has also been issued in the last few weeks.”
The work is expected to continue until March 17th.
