DORSET COUNTY COUNCIL intend, not less than seven days from the date of this notice to make an Order under Section 14  of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984, as amended. All pedestrians will be prohibited from proceeding along  Footpath 34, from grid reference E,368462 N,8I688 to grid reference E,368424 N,81606, a distance of approximately 435 metres.  Adopted footpath between grid reference E,368424 N,81606 and grid reference E,368388 N,81530. 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 07th May 2018 for a period of 26 weeks, (06th November 2018). But it may be extended, with the approval of the Secretary of State for Transport, if necessary. The closure will only be in place, as and when indicated by the signs placed on site. This closure is required to allow Weymouth and Portland Borough Council safe access to carry out trial pits and undertake bridge construction. For the period of this footpath closure an alternative route will be signposted on site using footpaths around the Lodmoor Reserve.
