A BUSY York road will be closed to traffic for several hours during the daytime on April 23 due to roadworks.

Vehicles will be unable to use Lowther Street from 9am to 4pm that day while resurfacing works take place. March Street, which is just off Lowther Street, will also be closed while the works are carried out.

An alternative route for diverted traffic will be signposted to drivers until the road reopens.
