Many of my constituents have contacted me regarding their concerns with the recent work on the A338. I fully appreciate and agree with the frustration from local residents who have been hugely inconvenienced by the current delays and I strongly believe more could be done to avoid this. The current delays are reaching unacceptable levels not helped by miles of completed works remaining conned off during peak times. I would have expected work at night during this period to be mandatory and would ask Dorset County Council to further explain the safety concerns restricting this.
This being said, Bournemouth Borough Council are doing their best to support the Dorset Country Council, and their designated contractors, by handling communication surrounding the work. They have provided answers to a variety of the frequently asked questions on the below website, which helps clarify a number of concerns that have been raised by residents: https://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/…/projec…/a338/a338-faqs.aspx
