DRIVERS are being warned of long delays on a major route due to ongoing roadworks.

Temporary traffic lights are in place on the A348 Ringwood Road between Longham and Bear Cross as a result of SGN work.

Already there is queuing traffic along the route. The problem is expected to worsen during the rush hour.

At the moment, motorists are delayed both ways between Ham Lane and Wimborne Road at the Bear Cross Roundabout.
