DRIVERS are being warned that gas pipe works will lead to a road being closed.
Sandy Chare, in Whitburn, will be closed from 9.30am on Friday so repair work to an underground gas main can be carried out.
The work is being carried out by Northern Gas Networks and is expected to be completed on the same day.
Vehicles will still be able to exit North Guards on to Cleadon Lane as normal.
Alternative route for vehicles will be via Cleadon Lane, Sunderland Road, Moor Lane and Front Street.
