Several roadworks are scheduled to affect Lyme Regis town centre in the new year.

After the chaos caused by the emergency closure of Broad Street at the Bell Cliff building, Lyme Regis residents and traders will have to put up with more disruption to the town centre as three different sets of roadworks are planned for January.

From January 5 until January 11, between 8am and 5pm, the National Grid will be doing work along Silver Street as workers disconnect/alter the electricity supply.

Whilst the road will not be closed, a traffic management system will be put in place which is expected to cause delays to traffic passing through the town centre.

There will also be a footway closure with alternative routes provided.

The electric supplier is also carrying out similar work on Broad Street from January 10 until January 12 between 9am until 4pm.

This work will only have some carriageway incursion and is not likely to cause any major delays.

Internet provider Openreach will also be carrying out work along Silver Street between the junction of Pound Road and the entrance to the Old Vicarage, a distance of approximately 120 metres.

This work will take place overnight from 8pm on January 8 until 6am on January 9 and is likely to cause delays in the evening.

A diversion route for this road closure will be in place, running along the B3165 through Uplyme to the A35 and back towards the Charmouth roundabout, joining the A3052 back into Lyme Regis.
