TRAFFIC disruption is likely in Lake, from Sunday until March next year, for construction of a new roundabout.
Temporary traffic lights will be in operation on the A3056 Newport Road junction with Whitecross Lane.
The new roundabout will serve the redevelopment of Merrie Gardens Farm site for a Marston's pub and restaurant.
The works will run from Sunday, October 28 until mid-December and from early January to late March.
Whitecross Lane will be closed between Newport Road and Merrie Gardens, for most of this period, to try to minimise disruption.
The diversion route for access to Whitecross Lane will be the A3056 Newport Road, A3055 Sandown Road, Green Lane, Sandy Lane and Whitecross Lane.
The Isle of Wight Council advised traffic travelling between Newport and Sandown to follow the A3056 to Blackwater and Arreton, Downs Road to Brading and the A3055 to Sandown and traffic travelling between Newport and Shanklin should use the A3020 through Godshill, to Shanklin.
