SEVERAL roads in the New Forest are due to be closed over the next couple of weeks.

The closures are being put in place to allow highways engineers to carry out resurfacing work on behalf of Hampshire County Council.

Vaggs Lane in Hordle is set to be closed from as early as April 11 until April 23.

At the same time, Tiptoe Road will be shut off for similar works.

Nearby Brockenhurst Road is set to be blocked off to vehicles until up to April 16 from its junction with Tiptoe Road to north of Wootton Bridge car park.

Hampshire County Council says the works may not take place on the first date advertised but will take place during the dates given.
