New Road to Studland temporarily closed for resurfacing

A section of New Road (B3351) that links Studland and Corfe Castle, is to be temporarily closed for four days for resurfacing works.

The work is scheduled to start on Monday 29th November and be completed by Thursday 2nd December 2021.

The road will be closed daily from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm with vehicles able to use the road outside those times.

The short section of road in green is the stretch that will be closed, with the blue indicating the diversion

Diversion via Valley Road

The stretch of road affected is from the junction with Currendon Hill near to the Isle of Purbeck golf club to just past the viewpoint layby.

While this is a short section of road, it will mean that those travelling to Corfe Castle from Swanage or Studland, will have to go via Valley Road, which passes through Harmans Cross.
