There may be traffic delays on the A38 over the next month as it undergoes resurfacing.

There may be traffic delays on the A38 over the next month as it undergoes resurfacing.

The resurfacing will be taking place from 12 March as part of the Council’s ongoing Road Rescue project to improve Bournemouth’s roads.

Carriageway resurfacing will be taking place on both the eastbound and westbound dual carriageways between Mountbatten Roundabout and Poole Lane Roundabout over a four week period.

Councillor Michael Filer, Cabinet Member for Transport and Technical Services, said: “I’d like to assure motorists that we have planned these works so that they cause as little disruption as possible.”

“Drivers should consider the possible traffic delays through these roadworks when planning their journeys,” he added.

In an effort to minimize to cause minimal disruption, construction work will be undertaken over a number of off-peak daytime and evening shifts.

A single traffic lane restriction will be put in place on one side of the dual carriageway at any one time to assist the work.

To ensure a safe working area the speed limit on the relevant side will be reduced to 30mph.

Both the lane restriction and the speed limit will be removed outside of the working hours.

The work will not restrict access to any residential properties and businesses fronting this section of Ringwood Road.

Traffic diversions with appropriate signage will be provided when resurfacing works are undertaken on the eastbound side of the dual carriageway towards Poole Lane Roundabout that restricts access into the adjacent roads.

Advanced notice signs will be placed in key locations along the route.

Cllr Filer added: “The Council’s Road Rescue programme has already delivered large scale resurfacing schemes across the borough and I’m delighted that this heavily used road will now benefit from improvements”
