Exeter High Street has been closed to all traffic for several weeks while highways works are carried out.

While the street remains open to pedestrians, bus services are being diverted around the section between South Street and Queen Street.

As the Express & Echo revealed in November, it has been feared the road surface could collapse without engineering work to reinstate a collapsed drainage system. Substandard repairs after bomb damage during the Second World War have been blamed for the structural problems.

The works are expected to be finished by Easter.

A spokesman for the bus operator said: "Stagecoach apologise for any difficulties our passengers may experience, which are due to circumstances beyond our control."

The following diversions to bus routes will be in place until further notice:

Service A – Towards Alphington, normal route down High Street, then right onto Queen Street, left onto Paul Street and left again onto North Street to resume normal route from the junction with Fore Street.
