Christchurch's Waterloo Bridge is due for a full repair next week after a summer of patch-ups.
The road will be closed from 5pm on Sunday 16th and all day Monday 17th September. The adjoining footbridge will remain open.
The bridge was resurfaced last September however the surface began to break down in June and became pot-holed. Just one year later the entire surface will be removed and replaced.
The council has been putting off resurfacing work over the summer so as not to disrupt the tourist season and Olympic Torch procession.
