Long delays on Portland Beach Road

Traffic cone Road works

7:20am 17th January 2018

Motorists are being told to expect further delays on and off Portland this morning.

The A354 Portland Beach Road came to a standstill last night with temporary traffic lights causing delays of up to 40 minutes along Rylands Lane to Hamm Beach Road.

Travel Dorset tweeted to say Scottish and Southern Energy, who are currently digging up the road, will be reviewing things this morning.

Motorist Sian Thomas-Cutts rang the Wessex FM Jamline to vent her fury.  

She said: "Traffic coming off Portland from the point of the roadworks was not even backed up to the 03 factory. There's a clear inbalance there. It's added a lot of time to my day as I am sure it has for a lot of people".

"If the council think I am going to put up with that for another 4 weeks then they have another thing coming".
