PROPOSED TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF THORNFORD ROAD, YETMINSTER

I have received an application from Wessex Water to close THORNFORD ROAD, YETMINSTER from its junction with Coles Lane to its junction with the access road to Trill House, a distance of approximately 850 metres. The closure has been requested to allow Wessex Water to provide new connection. These works are programmed to commence from 31 August 2021 until 3 September
2021.

Wessex Water will publicise the road closure in a number of ways: they will place information boards on the road in this area to inform the travelling public of the works; they will carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works; and they will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network. The following map shows the extent of the closure and the diversion route.

This document is for information only, however if you have any concerns about this proposal, please contact Samantha Paulley, (trafficteam@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk) by 17 August 2021
