Closure of Friar Street West
Major road repairs are taking place at the junction of Friar Street, West Street and Greyfriars Road this weekend. Work started straight after the Friday rush hour at 1930 yesterday with the carriageway between West Street and Friar Street closed, but with access to Greyfriars Road maintained with a diversion from West Street via the Chatham Street roundabout. From 1930 tonight the top of Greyfriars Road was closed as well with services diverted via the IDR.
