It's not often you get to stand in the middle of Wallisdown road to take a photograph and not be taking your life in your own hands. But essential maintenance currently under way in Wallisdown means the busy road is closed to traffic.
Unsurprisingly the local shops were quieter than usual.
The road between Canford Road and Kinson Road is closed from Tuesday 14th October for up to 5 days whilst Sembcorp (Bournemouth Water) carry out urgent works. For more information please contact Sembcorp on 01202 591111.
