Dorset Council have received an application from BT to close Dark Lane, Witchampton between Sheppards Drove to Witchampton Lane (in both directions), a distance of approximately 470 metres. The closure has been requested to allow BT safe access to their underground structure to install cabling . These works are programmed to commence from 09:30, 17th August 2020 until 15:30, 18th August 2020.
BT 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 map blow shows the extent of the closure and the diversion route.
If you have any concerns about this proposal, please contact Tom Faulkner, by 31st July 2020.
