Lancaster Bridge will be closed for six months in the new year.

Lancashire County Council is holding a number of drop-in sessions next week for members of the public to ask questions about major repairs planned for Greyhound Bridge.

The bridge, which acts as a primary route northwards, is set to be closed for six months next year from January to June, while the county council carries out a £4m refurbishment.

The project hopes to ensure the bridge retains the strength to carry large HGVs.

The council is holding four drop-in sessions on:

• Monday December 4, 10am to 8pm, at Morecambe Town Hall;

• Tuesday December 5, 10am to 8pm, at Lancaster Town Hall;

• Wednesday December 6, 10am to 6pm, at The Arndale Shopping Centre, Morecambe;

• Thursday December 7, 10am to 4pm, at St Nicholas Arcades, Lancaster.
