All vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along A350, Poole Road, Sturminster Marshall between the roundabout at A31 and Garth Home Farm (in both directions), a distance of approximately 700 metres. The Notice is needed in order to comply with health and safety regulations which require the provision of safe working areas and to minimise likelihood of danger to highway users.
