Stoke Road, coming out of North Curry between the centre and White Street, will be closed by day for some extensive drain replacements by SCC Highways, for about three weeks from Monday 8 January.

According to SCC Highways, the drainage work that has closed Stoke Road into N Curry is due to complete today ahead of schedule. The road should reopen from this afternoon (Fri 12) if not before, and the 51 bus should return to normal from tomorrow (Saturday). Work along Pavement has been slowed by staff illness, so the traffic lights will continue in the centre of N Curry for some time.

The next stage of the drainage works will affect White St, which will be closed during the day from Monday for an indefinite period, but should be open in the evenings.
