This page details notification of Road Works & Closures as received by the YRIPC.


DORSET COUNCIL has made an Order under Section 14 [1] of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 as amended. All vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along BRISTER END, YETMINSTER from its junction with Brierley Hay for a distance of 134 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 26 July 2021 and will remain in force for 18 months, however it is anticipated that the works will be completed by 12 August 2021.

This Order will enable Wessex Water safe access to carry out sewer renovation works.
