Overnight closures of Leigh Road for 5 nights at the end of April 2021

Due to resurfacing work being undertaken by Highways England on the A31 at the Merley Roundabout, the diversion route for the published Leigh Road overnight closures has been changed.

Leigh Road, Wimborne will be closed overnight between Parmiter Drive and Gordon Road (in both directions) from the evening of 26th April to the morning of 1st May 2021.  The overnight closures will be from 8pm in the evening until 6am the following morning.

During the night-time closures a diversion route will be in place from Canford Bottom Roundabout, via Canford Bottom, Middlehill Road, Wimborne Road and Rowlands Hill.

The closures are part of the improvement works currently underway on Leigh Road and Wimborne Road West in Wimborne and Colehill.  It is necessary for the safe installation of the traffic control systems, new parallel crossing and new layout at the Brook Road Junction.

Any residents needing special consideration for deliveries or mobility should contact the dedicated TCF Dorset Direct hotline on 01305 221025 before the closures begin.
