Part of the A31 at Bere Regis will close overnight for survey work to be carried out. (from March 10th- 13th)
The Highways Agency say they'll be assessing the condition of the road, and that there'll be a signed diversion in place.
Guy Watts, Highways Agency Project Sponsor told Wessex FM more, "We will be using specialist on-vehicle technology to allow us to assess the condition of the road and plan future maintenance work that will ensure journeys remain safe. We will need to close the A31 in both directions to complete the surveys."
The overnight survey of the A31 between the A350 and the A35 will begin on Monday the 10th and finish on Thursday the 13th of March. A diversion will be in place via the A350, A35 and A31. The survey of the A31 between the B3072 and the A329 will take place overnight on the Thursday with a diversion via the B3073, A348, A341 and A349.
The road will close at 10pm and reopen at 5am every morning.
