Flooding Work On Bournemouth Airport Road

Work by Dorset County Council to stop flooding on Parley Lane near Bournemouth International Airport will begin on Monday 28 November and last for up to three weeks.

There are currently problems with flooding across the road, which is in a national speed limit and is unlit.  

Recent site investigations have found that the existing surface water drainage system is no longer working and needs to be replaced.

Dorset Highways, the county council's roads and transport service, will be carrying out the works on a 400-metre section of Parley Lane near the junction with Merritown Lane. 

In order to safely carry out the work, temporary traffic signals will be in place between 9.30am and 3.30pm Mondays to Saturdays.

The work is being done outside of peak times in order to minimise disruption to traffic.
