A ROUTE from Martley towards Great Witley is on track to reopen this weekend.

The B4197 at Ankerdine Hill between Easinghope Lane and Conifer Heights has been fully closed for electrical supply installation by Western Power Distribution.

The work includes new overhead cables, excavation and trenching in the road and pole changes and a signed diversion has been operational via Martley, Clifton and Bromyard throughout.

The works have a permit up to midnight tonight (Friday, November 20) but a spokesperson for Worcestershire County Council's Highways department expects them to be completed and the road to be reopened for regular traffic flow earlier in the day.
