DELAYS are likely to be caused in the centre of Worcester today and through this evening as one lane over the river bridge is closed.

The lane into the city at Worcester bridge will be closed from 2pm today while Western Power Distribution repair a high voltage cable fault.

The work will continue through the evening but it is hoped the lane will be open in time for tomorrow morning’s rush hour, although it is not yet known if this will be possible.

The pavement on the north side of the bridge will also be closed while the work is carried out.

A previous cable fault at the junction of The Butts and Angel Place, which caused power cuts on Friday, has been repaired.
