A338 Blackwater Improvements - October 2018

Media Release

We have issued a media release today as bridge works are set to be carried out marking a major milestone in our project. We have taken the opportunity to recap on the works underway as part of the Dorset LEP's BIG Programme which you are already well aware of, but you may like to view the release. This also previews upcoming night closures.

You can read it here.


Works underway

We're giving more information including photo and video content on social media channels, to show people the scale of the works being undertaken and this week we posted a video which explains what we're doing right now.

It's also covered in this blog post.


Upcoming dates

Currently we want to make you aware of two upcoming sets of dates.

15 - 19 October

Night time A338 northbound lane closure from Cooper Dean to Blackwater 8pm - 6am.

This is NOT a full closure, the road is open and being at night this lane closure should not cause too much disruption.

23 - 25 October

Full night time closures of the A338 will be in place from Cooper Dean to Ashley Heath for bridge works on 23,24 and 25 October, from 8pm - 6am.

You will see further coverage in the coming week directed at the general public on our channels.
