Blandford Road To Shut Completely!
Wessex Water have apologosed to already irrate drivers in Poole after closing Blandford Road completely.
It's after they discovered a storm water sewer had collapsed. The road already had restricted access due to some unrelated water supply work the company were doing but now it will need to be closed in both directions from Thursday 8 November until Sunday evening -the 11th November.
The company says emergency repairs are needed and a diversion is in place, taking vehicles via Rigler Road, Twin Sails Bridge, West Quay Road, Holes Bay Road, A35.
A Wessex Water spokesman said:
“We understand the inconvenience our work has caused local people and motorists and we are sorry that we have to close the road in both directions for this emergency work to take place.
“The road is unsafe for vehicles so it is essential we carry out the repairs as soon as possible.
“Our workforce will be working 24 hours a day and over the weekend to complete the work so the road can be reopened on Sunday evening.
“We sincerely apologise for the disruption and would urge motorists to allow extra time for their journeys over the next couple of days.”
