Work begins on Buccleuch Street Bridge in Dumfries

Drivers in Dumfries are being warned of serious disruptions for the rest of the summer as maintenance work gets underway on Buccleuch Street Bridge.

A 12 week programme of works is scheduled to take place to allow for repairs and repainting, which could see one of the three lanes closed for up to 6 weeks at a time.

The work should have been done during the major resurfacing last year, but had to be delayed due to bad weather.

The work has been timed to come between the town's Guid Nychburris celebrations and the arrival of the Tour of Britain cycle race in September.
