A ROAD in Purbeck is closed due to emergency gas pipe repairs.

Bovington Lane in Bovington is closed between Cologne Road and Stanley Barracks while SGN carries out the repairs.

A signed diversion is in place and buses will also be diverted.

An SGN spokesperson said: “We're aware this is a busy route and our engineers are working hard to get the repairs made as quickly and safely as possible. We hope that our work will not cause too much travel disruption, but advise you allow yourself more time to complete journeys in the area.”
