This will give the safe space necessary on site for the northbound central reservation kerbing to be replaced. Doing this part of the work now should help reduce the northbound lane closure as part of the work next year.
During half term — week commencing Monday 22 October — there will be three nights of full road closure. These closures will allow pre-cast concrete units to be lowered into place in the gap between the two bridges over the River Stour.
This will join together the two separate bridges and allow carriageway widening into the central reservation.
There will be a signed diversion route during this work. It has been eported by a resident to Dorset County Council. Please ensure registered waste removal firms are employed at all times, so you know that your waste is being disposed of legally. The judges of the competition noted the effort made by the large number of village volunteers who maintain the road verges and public parks, who maintain the many roadside flower planters and litter pick in all weathers.

Monday Lane 1 southbound closed from the quarry entrance on the A should only be a short closure Tuesday Lane 1 southbound closed from the quarry entrance down to Cooper Dean.
This will be a long closure, and it will appear that not a lot is going on. Vegetation clearance outside the water works will also be finished. Wednesday Lane 1 southbound closed if work from Monday and Tuesday needs finishing Thursday Lane 1 southbound closed from the quarry entrance on the A should only be a short closureLane 1 northbound closed from Cooper Dean.
Vegetation clearance at Blackwater Junction will also be done. Firstly signage was placed at the end of Ridgeway adjoining Christchurch Road. It was experiencing high numbers of vehicles which were driving at speed, which could potentially damage their vehicles, trying to dodge the queues on Christchurch Road.
Ridgeway is not adopted by Dorset County Council and the residents of Ridgeway pay for the road to be maintained.
The second sign is at the entrance of the Cul de Sac on Mags Barrow. Numerous cars would turn off New Road to avoid the queues, however the second turn for Mags Barrow leads to a cul de sac, so signage has been erected to deter the speeding vehicles up and down this dead end road.
The roundabout — and all approaches — will be closed to traffic from 8pm to 6am on Monday 24, Tuesday 25, Wednesday 26, Thursday 27 and Friday 28 September so that surfacing and white lining works can be carried out. Local access will be maintained but there may be a short delay while we move machinery or carry out a task there will be no through access.
Highways England have a section of the eastbound A31 closed during these evenings. The diversion route for the Hurn Roundabout closures will follow the same route as diverted A31 traffic: Keep up to date by registering for Dorset Alerts to your email.
Many Councils have elected to remove all bins at public sites to reduce costs, and users are forced to take their rubbish and waste home with them. This is made easier by Dorset Waste Partnership allowing dog waste to be disposed of in the usual black kerbside household bin collection.
However, the Parish Council currently has the bins to ensure the Recreation Ground is at its best for all users.evidence on writing?
