Night closure of A350 Poole Road

 A vital link road into Poole is being closed overnight for three weeks while resurfacing and drainage work is carried out.

The A350 Poole Road will be closed by Dorset County Council between the A31 Roundhouse Roundabout and Jubilee Cross (the turning to Lytchett Matravers) from 7pm to 6am during the following weeks:

• Monday 8 April to early hours of Saturday 13 April
• Monday 15 April to early hours of Saturday 20 April
• Monday 22 April to early hours of Saturday 27 April

The road will be open overnight on Saturday 13 April, Sunday 14 April, Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April.

Andrew Martin, head of highways operations, said: “We know that this road is the vital link into Poole and the port for business deliveries, and we have given early warning about this work to the port and local chamber of trade.

“Because of the narrow width of the road, and the large equipment and delivery vehicles that will be in use, the only way to carry out the work is to close it overnight.

“Anyone who uses the A350 will know that the road surface is in a very bad condition and will understand the need for the work.”

The diversion route will be the A31, A341 Oakley Hill, A349 Gravel Hill/Waterloo Road, A35 Upton Road and A35 Upton Bypass.
