All vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along B3163 Whitcombe Road/ Hooke Junction, Beaminster between B3163 Dirty Gate To Toller Down Gate and Whitcombe Road, a distance of approximately 3040 metres. The Order is needed in order to comply with health and safety regulations which require the provision of safe working areas and to minimise the likelihood of danger to highway users.

Please note that the dates are a window of opportunity and the road(s) may not be closed for the whole duration stated above and are also weather dependant.
