Brickwork To Be Inspected At Branksome Viaduct

The brickwork of the Branksome Viaduct is due to be inspected resulting in the temporary closure of the roads that pass under the viaduct.

Surrey Road will be closed on Sunday 10 March from 7.30am to 7.00pm allowing inspection of the road arch and north embankment arches to take place.

This will then be followed by the temporary closure of Gordon Road on Monday 11 March from 7.30am to 7.00pm enabling the road arch and south embankment arches to be inspected.

From Tuesday 12 March to Friday 15 March the remainder of the structure will be inspected although no further road closures will be required during this time.

Bus companies have been notified and road users will be advised via electronic message signs in the area.

Julian McLaughlin, Head of Transportation Services, Borough of Poole, said: "We would like to thank local people for their patience and understanding while this inspection takes place. We recognise it is likely to cause some traffic disruption but our primary concern has to be the safety of all road users. We apologise for any inconvenience which may be caused."
