Motorists travelling through Arreton face delays over the next 6 weeks due to utility works in the area.
2-way temporary traffic lights have been erected on the main Sandown to Newport road this morning (Wednesday) to enable fibre connection work to be undertaken.
According to published information, the works will extend through to Hale Common and towards Apse Heath. The traffic lights are currently set up near School Lane.
The work should be finished by 12th April when the Isle of Wight is set to significantly unlock from the national lockdown, however, schools are going back for the first time since Christmas on Monday (8th March).
For today only, there are also temporary lights near to Sandown Airport for works by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks. Next week, Island Roads look set to set up lights at Apse Heath roundabout for 2 days and at Hale Common for 4 days.
