ROAD users are set to benefit from a £1.1million scheme to repair the surface along a main road in Dorset.

The Highways Agency says work on the A31 between the Roundhouse roundabout near Wimborne and the Bere Regis roundabouts will begin next week.

The overnight work to repair several sections of surface will start on Monday, September, 24 and, weather permitting, will be completed on Sunday, September 30. It will involve the carriageway being closed overnight.
