Wimborne Road West in Colehill will be closed overnight each evening from the 12th July to the morning of 16th July 2021. The overnight closures will be from 8pm in the evening until 6am the following morning. During these closures a diversion route through Colehill will be in place, which will take traffic along Canford Bottom, Middle Hill Road, Wimborne Road and Rowland’s Hill. See map for details.

The closures are necessary to allow for the re-surfacing of the road to be carried out, following the completion of the first sections of the new Leigh Road/Wimborne Road West cycle and pedestrian improvements.

At the same time, the two entrances to Stapehill Cresent will also be temporarily closed. Each will close on different days with one entrance remaining open whilst the other closes to ensure access to the crescent is maintained. The eastern entrance will be closed on 13th July for 24hrs and the western entrance will be closed on 14th July for 24hrs. This is to allow re-surfacing of the junctions to happen at the same time as the adjacent section of Wimborne Road West.

During these night-time closures, local access to properties may be temporarily restricted. Any residents needing special consideration for deliveries or mobility should contact the dedicated TCF Dorset Direct hotline on 01305 221025 before the closures begins.
