Drivers are being urged to find alternative routes following a road closure in Blackburn.

A section of Beech Street, just off Whalley Old Road is closed due to work being conducted by Electricity North West.

Work is set to continue until March 9 and drivers should be aware that the road is closed in both directions. 

Lancashire Telegraph:
The route links Whalley Old Road with Plane Street and is used by residents as a short cut on to Whalley New Road and Whalley Range.
