Rolling programme of road closures across Swanage

A number of roads across Swanage are to be closed while they’re resurfaced over the first two weeks of March 2020. The rolling programme from the 2nd to the 15th March 2020 will see each road treated with micro-asphalt, which is laid over the top of the existing surface to get rid of potholes. It’s then sealed and protected.

Signposted diversion

The roads will be closed between 8 am and 4pm but will be open overnight and at weekends. While each road is closed, a signposted diversion will be in place.
