RESURFACING and repair work on several key Dorset roads will take place in the coming weeks.

Dorset Highways maintenance teams will be out across the county over the next month to repair road damage by resurfacing and patching roads.

For the work to take place safely, the area of the road being worked on will be closed. Daytime road closures are from 9am until 4pm and nighttime road closures are from 8pm until 6am.

A spokesman for Dorset Council said: "Dorset Highways' annual road maintenance programme includes patching, micro-surfacing, surface dressing, in-situ recycling, road preservation and resurfacing treatments.

"Using a variety of surface treatments ensures that more of Dorset Council's roads get repaired with the budget available, compared to using resurfacing alone.

"We will do our best to keep you updated if our schedule of work changes."
