Wessex Water have reopened North Quay and removed temporary lights in Weymouth.

Lights on the A354 near Asda were due to be in place until 31st March but were taken down on Saturday afternoon.

North Quay is also fully re-open after closing to westbound traffic for almost two weeks.

The final stages of work in Weston Road are close to completion and Wessex Water expects to wrap up the scheme this week, well ahead of the scheduled finish date at the end of March.

Pipes have been renovated to prevent seawater entering Weymouth’s sewer network, ahead of 18-year high spring tides that will happen in July.

Wessex Water’s Julian Britton, who has been coordinating the work, said:

“We’ve been able to get ahead of schedule by working some nights and using ‘no-dig’ technology to increase efficiency.

“We appreciate these essential repairs on a busy road have impacted on residents, businesses and traffic and we’d like to thank the community for their patience and understanding.”
