A STRETCH of road through St Bees will be closed for a week from Monday.

The road will be shut between the Railway Station and Byresteads junction to allow Cumbria Highways to carry out road surfacing works.

An alternative route for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be maintained at all times and diversions will be put in place for vehicles. This will be along the unrestricted sections of Main Street, St Bees Road, Mirehouse Road and the A595.
