Beaminster Tunnel Decision Soon


12:11pm 20th October 2012

How to fix Beaminster Tunnel will be decided in two and a half weeks time...but the work will take another SIX months.

That's what engineers have told a packed meeting in the town, who are desperate for it to re-open as soon as possible.

They gave a range of options at a public meeting this week

A vote by those attending showed the most preferred option was an extened protective hood over either end of the tunnel.  

Tons of earth crashed down killing a couple as they drive through the tunnel in July.

Dorset's cabinet will make a final decision on November the 7th.
