Durweston flood arch work continues

Buzzz, News

Major construction work is continuing in preparation for the demolition of a busy Dorset road.

From Monday 3 June, drivers along the A357 through Durweston should allow extra time for their journeys as three-way temporary lights will replace the permanent A350/A357 junction signals.

The traffic signal on the A357 is being moved around 100m away from the junction to provide safe working space for the removal of road fencing and kerbs, and for strengthening of the carriageway edge, on the north side.

The temporary signals will be in place for three weeks until Saturday 22 June, when the road will be closed for four weeks.

The closure is needed because the flood arches – and the road over them – will be demolished so the new culvert units can be installed.

Work will also take place to remove road fencing and kerbs, and to strengthen the carriageway edge, on the south side.
