A section of road between Bridport and Broadwindsor will be closed for cabling work.

The B3162 in Salway Ash will be closed between its junction with C18 and its junction with Pitchers, a distance of approximately 1,300 metres on Thursday, February 29 from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

This closure will enable Openreach safe access to the overhead structure for cabling works.

The alternative route, which will be sign-posted is as follows: B3162 - B3163 - A3066.

Openreach will publicise the road closure in a number of ways: they will place information boards on the road in this area to inform the travelling public of the works; they will carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works; and they will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network.

For further information about the work being undertaken and access arrangements, call Openreach on 03700 500 792.

To discuss this closure notice, contact Dorset Council on 01305 221020.
