Drivers Hit Out At Delays On Boot Hill

Road Works Weymouth

Motorists have lashed out over roadworks on Boothill in Weymouth.

2 way traffic lights have been grinding traffic to a halt while Southern Electric dig up the road.

Taxi driver Roy Thorpe says it doesn't seem like much is being done.



Matthew Piles, Dorset County Council’s highways manager said:

 “I’d like to thank the residents of Weymouth and Portland for finding alternative routes while Southern Electric has to do essential work on Rodwell Road. There wasn’t a delay this morning (Tuesday) at peak time, and there hasn’t been any problems throughout today. We have noticed that people are using our suggested route along Lanehouse Rocks Road and the Weymouth Way to get across town.”


We'd like to know what you think and how you've been affected.
