TRAFFIC will not be able to travel between Shanklin and Ventnor tomorrow (Tuesday) due to tree works.

A section of Church Road, near Big Mead, will be closed from 7.30am to approximately 5pm.

The section closed is between Priory Road and Rectory Road, but it means no access to Shanklin, from the Ventnor direction, and vice versa.

Island Roads, on behalf of the Isle of Wight Council, has a temporary Prohibition of Through Traffic) Order in place for arboricultural works.

The alternative route will be sign posted locally, taking cars around Wroxall.

As previously reported, tree works are being undertaken in the area, including at Big Mead and St Blasius Church.

Also starting tomorrow, is major cable work in Sandown. The Broadway will be one way for eight weeks.
