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

TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF HIGH STREET, YETMINSTER

Dorset Highways, to enable them to carry out maintenance work, plan to close High Street Yetminster between 24th and 26th January 2023. The road will be closed daily between the hours of 09:00 and 16:00 but it will be open overnight.

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.

They 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 issues.

They will contact us 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 Dorset Highways
