Reflective Cats Eyes Temporarily Removed from A35
7:18am 13th May 2014
Dorset Highways have told us the "cats eyes" on the A35 between Bere Regis and Bakers Arms roundabout, will be put back.
The reflective spots, that are dotted along the central reservation, were removed last week for resurfacing works.
The busy stretch of road is a popular through route for people commuting into Poole and Bournemouth.
Dorset Highways manager Martin Hill says the resurfacing project is set to last roughly 6 weeks depending on the weather forecast, but assured us the "cats eyes" will be re-installed;
"They're definitely going to be replaced but they won't be at the correct height after the resurfacing work which is why we've had to take them out first, and we'll put them back after we've done the work. The cats eyes will be done before the winter gets here."
