WORK is progressing on a £600,000 improvement scheme in Weymouth’s inner harbour.

Wessex Water is investing £600,000 to make improvements to the existing outfall at Westham Bridge to control storm water flows into the marina more effectively.

The project started at the end of January and is due for completion at the end of May.

The company has taken over much of Westham Bridge with its work compound with many parking spaces on the bridge out of action.

A lane has also been closed on Westwey Road to allow work to take place safely.

A Wessex Water spokesman said: “Our work at the marina in Weymouth is progressing well and remains on course for completion at the end of May.”

Meanwhile, drivers are warned the bottom half of Westham Road from the Commercial Road junction will be closed to traffic today and tomorrow.

The Wessex Water spokesman said: “The road closure in

Westham Road is to allow us to carry out repairs to a manhole cover.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closure, which is necessary for the safety of road users and our staff.”

The road closure will affect certain bus operations.
