ISLE of Wight motorists are being warned of possible delays on the main road between Newport and Cowes tomorrow (Tuesday).

The warning comes as work gets underway to improve the safety and accessibility of bus stops on both the north and south-bound side of the carriageway, close to the County Showground and military history museum.

During the work, temporary two-way traffic lights will be in operation.

They will be manually controlled during busy periods to help minimise disruption.

The scheme, which is due to be completed by December 3, forms part of the Isle of Wight Council's £150,000 bus stop improvement programme announced last month.

Upgrades are specific to each location, but include the introduction of dropped kerbs, new road markings and signage, tactile paving, increased hard standings and improved drainage.

The works on Cowes Road include a new tactile pedestrian crossing point and a small section of footway on the western side of the carriageway.
