Road closures across Dorset for roadworks: Full list of streets

DOZENS of roads across Dorset will be closed for repair work in the coming months.

Surfacing works are taking place over the next three months, which Dorset Council says will “extend the life of urban residential roads”.

Wimborne, Gillingham, Verwood, Ferndown and Corfe Mullen are among the places set to see work carried out.

Contractor Kiely Bros are carrying out the work, which is underway in some Ferndown and Wimborne areas, due to finish by mid-March, before they commence the 2024 programme, which is due to complete by mid April.

Two gangs are carrying out the work, with affected households set to receive a leaflet before it gets underway.

The treatment, known as microasphalt surfacing, extends the life of the road, the council said, as a cost-effective method for worn, but not structurally failing, routes.

Road closures during works are from 8am to 5pm, due to the size of vehicles required, with advance notice signs being displayed beforehand.

Residents are asked to not park vehicles on the road/verges when the work is due to start, with ‘No parking’ set up two to three days in advance.
