Closure of a rural road near the village of Dorset for resurfacing


A ROUTE in a village in Dorset will be closed for resurfacing.

A 1,220 meter stretch of Dewlish Road in Milborne Saint Andrew, from its junction for Dennets House outside Springfield, will be closed in both directions between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 24.

A public notice from Dorset Council says maintenance needs to carry out resurfacing and a road closure is needed to keep work done safely.

It reads: “This notice will enable Dorset Council to carry out road maintenance and resurfacing. ”

During the road closure, a 4.7 mile detour route will be signposted that will lead motorists to Milborne Saint Andrew and onto the A354.

To bypass the closed road, motorists should head east towards Lynch Close before turning right onto the A354.

On the A354, drivers must turn right onto an unnamed rural road and follow the road again to make another right turn.

Drivers should then turn right onto Church Street and follow the road that becomes Middle Street.

Dorset Council warns that anyone breaking the road closure could be convicted or face a fine of up to £ 1,000.
