COMMUTERS in the north of the county might want to leave home a little earlier when a busy route into Hereford closes for three days later this month.

The C1125 will be closed from Shelwick to the A465 Roundabout for much needed resurfacing works from 9am to 5pm on May 20, 21 and 22.

A diversion route for cars and large goods vehicles via the C1125, C1126 and A565 will be in place for the duration of the works.

Businesses, carers, and others who require access at specific times are asked to contact Herefordshire Council/Balfour Beatty Living Places on 01432 261800.

The road is expected to reopen at 5pm on May 22.
