7:22pm Monday 12th August 2013 in News
OVERNIGHT closures of the A31 begin tonight.
The main road will be closed from 10pm to 6am between Canford Bottom and the Merley roundabout for six nights.
The work, to resurface sections of the carriageway, is due to be completed on the morning of Sunday August 18.
Highways chiefs say the work will 'provide smoother journeys for road users.'
Mike Goddard, Highways Agency project sponsor said: “We are resurfacing sections of the carriageway that have come to the end of their life; this will help maintain safe and reliable journeys.
"We have planned the work carefully to minimise disruption to road users and local residents and will carry out the work overnight, when traffic flows are lowest.”
A fully signed diversion route will be in place via local roads.
