LYME Regis’ high street is to undergo “essential” resurfacing works over four days in April, which may cause delays.
Broad Street, as well as Pound Street and Sidmouth Road in Lyme Regis will be affected from April 20 to April 23 to allow the works to be carried out by Dorset Council.
During this period, traffic will be under ‘stop and go’ management from 9am to 4pm daily, but the roads will be open overnight.
There will be no on-street parking allowed and any vehicle contravening this may be removed.
Dorset Council is restarting a programme of carefully-selected surfacing works in line with the government’s guidance for construction activity – that this should continue where it fits with both the current Public Health requirements and in accordance with industry safety guidance.
The revised list of surfacing sites is made up of roads that are in a deteriorating condition and are considered essential to help keep life-saving medicine, equipment, supplies and key works travelling safely across the county.
The work comes after significant disruption in Broad Street on late 2020 when utility works were carried out alongside the installation of a new pedestrian crossing.
It will also follow the planned reopening of non-essential retail on April 12.
The official diversion will see traffic signposted from one end of the town to another via the A3052, A35 and A358 through Musbury.
