DRIVERS will face disruption this week as the main road between Hereford and Worcester will be closed during the day until Friday.

Sections of the A4103 between Newtown crossroads and the A465 junction to Bromyard will be closed from 9am-5pm for improvement works between today and Friday.

For the three days, the main road will be shut at Pink House, and on Thursday and Friday the road will also be closed near Shucknall Spout. On the same days, there will be three-way traffic lights at the Bartestree turn at Withington.

During the works, drivers will be diverted along the A417 to Burley Gate and then the A465 to Hereford.

Heavy goods vehicles will have to take the A417 to Leominster, then the A49 to Hereford to avoid the low bridge.
