Highways England have advised that essential maintenance and improvements to the drainage system along the A31 in Dorset will be now be starting on September 2020.
For a period of approximately eight weeks, starting in September 2020, the A31 east and westbound carriageways will be closed overnight between the A35 Bere Regis roundabout and the A350 Roundhouse roundabout.
During the closures a signed diversion will be in place via the A35 and A350. In addition, crossing points at Almer, Worlds End Pub and Red Post will be in place using temporary traffic lights for residents to be able to travel north/south across the A31.
Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles, and those residents whose property entrance is directly off the A31.
Below is a leaflet with more information about the works.
