A31 closed overnight near Wimborne for resurfacing work
MOTORISTS on the A31 can expect further misery as the road will close around Wimborne overnight until Sunday 18 August.
Resurfacing work on the road between Canford Bottom and the Merley roundabout started last night, with the carriageway closed between 10pm and 6am.
Mike Goddard, project sponsor at the Highways Agency said: "We are resurfacing sections of the carriageway that have come to the end of their life. This will help maintain safe and reliable journeys.
"We have planned the work carefully to minimise disruption to road users and local residents and will carry out the work overnight, when traffic flows are lowest."
