A major Swindon road that has been closed since January 6 will re-open at 6am tomorrow. 

Gipsy Lane and Bridge End Road closed at the start of the year for gas pipe upgrades by Wales & West Utilities. 

The road was scheduled to be closed until the beginning of March but work has been completed two weeks ahead of schedule. 

A spokesman for Swindon Borough Council said on Tuesday: "The surfacing is done, just a few more bits need to be finished off. 

"It will be open at 6am tomorrow."

Rush hour drivers had to deal with a two-mile diversion because of the closure which led commuters up to the Magic Roundabout and back past Greenbridge before finally reaching the other side.
