We have received an application from Bournemouth Water, to close Chapel Row, Witchampton from the junction with Dark Lane to the junction with Sheephouse Drove, Witchampton, a distance of approximately 280 metres. The closure has been requested to allow Bournemouth Water safe access to carry out defective fire hydrant repairs. These works are programmed to commence from 4th February 2019 for 3 days with an end date of the 6th February 2019. The road closure is necessary for safety reasons, as the works will take place within the whole width of the carriageway.
Bournemouth Water will publicise the road closure in a number of ways: they will place information boards on the road in this area to inform the travelling public of the works; they will carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works; and they will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network.
The full notice including a map is below and shows the extent of the closure and the diversion route.
If you have any concerns about this proposal, please contact Marc Cutler by the 16 January 2019.
