Dorset Council are continuing to maintain and invest in Dorset’s highway network. In recognition of the current pandemic, additional
safety measures are also being taken to ensure the health and safety of workers in these unprecedented times. We are working
closely with other highway authorities across the south west and with industry bodies to share knowledge of new ways of working. We will continue to do our best to keep Dorset’s businesses and residents up to date as work progresses. The latest information on
all planned road works can be found at www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/roadworks
To enable us to carry out maintenance work, we plan to close Westwood Avenue Ferndown Dorset on the 9th March 2022. The road
will be closed between the hours of 09:00 and 16:00 . During the closure periods there will be no on street parking available.
Parking restrictions will be imposed to prevent waiting or parking on the roads stated above. Any vehicle waiting in contravention of
any restriction imposed by this Notice may be removed under the provisions of the Removal and Disposal of Vehicles Regulations
1986. If a vehicle has been towed the owner will need to contact our towing contractors Bride Valley on 01305 889421.
We will be repairing sections of road within the area marked in red indicated on the map. The diversion route is marked in blue.
National regulations state that we have to divert traffic onto the same classification of road as the one we have closed. Vehicular
and pedestrian access will be maintained for residents, however there may be a time where they are asked to wait depending on
the current activity on site, there will be a Traffic Management Operative on site to aid traffic.
In the current financial climate, the highways service has had to focus it budget on targeting the most damaged sections of road
and areas with safety issues.
We will contact you again nearer the time to confirm the dates of the work and the closure needed.
