A bridge over railway lines will be closed over-night later this week while work is carried out on the tracks.

The bridge on Smithies Lane will be closed from 10pm on Thursday, December 3 to 6am on Friday, December 4, so that Network Rail can clear vegetation.

It's important that vegetation gets cleared as it helps drivers to be able to see the tracks more clearly and provides a safe space for rail workers to stand while working.

The disruption is expected to last one night.
