Road Markings Working on Coast Road
9:49am 10th December 2012
The policy of minimising road markings to make drivers think about what they're doing on the Weymouth to Bridport coast road is working.
That's what the Head of Highways for Dorset County Council's told Wessex FM.
Work's due to start today (Monday 10th December) on changing the white lining on the B3157.
Mike Winter says he knows the project is unpopular with a number of drivers but they'll continue to monitor the scheme and make enhancements where necessary.
Work will start on Monday 10 December, for one week, between 9am and 4.30pm. This work is weather dependant.
Highways staff at Dorset County Council will start at the bend at Bagwell Farm, near Chickerell, and move west towards Bridport. Delays will be kept to a minimum, with stop and go boards used where necessary.
