Road Closure Notice:
This closure relates to the  C93 BETWEEN CHETNOLE & MELBURY BUBB between Hell Corner Melbury Bubb to its junction with Stockwood Road, a distance of 1375 metres.  It will come into operation on 24 June 2019 and will remain in force for 18 months, however it is anticipated that the works will be completed by 9 August 2019 and  will enable Wessex Water safe access to replace 1210 metres of fragile water main.  The alternative route is detailed on the map within the link above.  


 Road Closure Consultation:
This closure is subject to consultation until 2 .7.19.  Dorset council have received an application from Wessex Water to close BATCOMBE LANE, CHETNOLE from its junction with Station road to St Peters Church, a distance of approximately 560 metres. The closure has been requested to allow Wessex Water to replace an ageing watermain through Chetnole. These works are programmed to commence from 19 August 2019 until 20 September 2019.  Wessex Water will publicise the road closure in a number of ways: they will place information boards on the road in this area to inform the travelling public of the works; they will carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works; and they will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network. The following map shows the extent of the closure and the diversion route.
