Proposed Closure of B3146 Jan ’22

Proposed closure of B3146 Jan ’22

Dear Sir/Madam
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
To enable us to carry out maintenance work, we plan to close B3146 Glanvilles Wootton between 18th and 26th January 2022. The road will be closed
daily between the hours of 09:00 and 16.00 but it will be open overnight and at weekends. 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.
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
We will contact you again nearer the time to confirm the dates of the work and the closure needed.
If you wish to discuss any issues regarding this work, please contact us.
Yours faithfully
