Temporary Closure of Newstead Road
Starts: 04/11/2021 Ends: 04/05/2023
Dorset Council has made an Order under Section 14  of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 as amended. All vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along NEWSTEAD ROAD, WEYMOUTH between its junction with Abbotsbury Road and its junction with Knightsdale Road, a distance of 220 metres. The Order is needed in order to comply with health and safety regulations which require the provision of safe working areas and to minimise the likelihood of danger to highway users. It will come into operation on 4 November 2021 and will remain in force for 18 months, however it is anticipated that the works will be completed by 2 December 2021.
This Order will enable Wessex Water safe access to replace burst water main and move valve. Please note that the whole extent shown on the map will not be closed all the time, the works will be carried out in phases.
The alternative route, which will be sign posted is as follows: Newstead Road – Westway Road – Abbotsbury Road
