A MAJOR road for commuters will be closed this week.

South Gloucestershire Council have confirmed that Westerleigh Road, between Westerleigh and Pucklechurch will be closed five days.

The closure will be from Monday, February 17 until February 21.

The council are planning to install a new island refuge outside of Westerleigh Crematorium.

The aim is to help improve pedestrian safety in the area.
