CHURCH Street and Bridge Street in Lyme Regis remain closed for a third day.
The roads were closed on Sunday for emergency work to be carried out by Western Power Distribution, and were expected to re-open on Monday evening after the problem was resolved. However, a gas leak has now been detected in the area so the the road closure remains in place today (Tuesday).
The closure has affected local bus routes, with First’s X51 and X53 being diverted through Uplyme, and picking up and turning around at the Pound Street entrance to Langmoor Gardens before heading back out through Uplyme.
Stagecoach’s 9A service is not operating in Anning Road and King’s Way, instead terminating in the town centre.
