Dorset Council have received an application from Openreach to close Unnamed Road, Witchampton from Grid reference ST 97751 06258 to Grid reference ST 97720 06168 (in both directions), a distance of approximately 130 metres. The closure has been requested to provide Openreach with a safe working area to undertake poletests. These works are programmed to commence from 09:30, 8th October 2021 until 15:30, 8th October 2021.

Openreach 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;
  • they will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network. The map in the official notice and embedded below (as a PDF),  shows the extent of the closure and the diversion route.

This notice is for information only, however if you have any concerns about this proposal, you should contact Tom Faulkner by 22nd September 2021.
