Dorset Council has issued a Notice under Section 14 [2] of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 as amended. All vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along Colehill Road, Lytchett Matravers between Boar Hill Lodge and West Park Farm Bungalow, a distance of approximately 830 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.

This Notice will enable Openreach safe access to carry out pole testing in the highway.

A locally signed diversion route will be put in place to enable traffic to travel around the closed sections.
