Bridport traders are bracing themselves for the misery of one-way traffic for gasworks at the top of South Street – but have been promised work will stop for the Easter holidays.
The month-long one-way road closure will start tomorrow and will mean southbound traffic won’t be allowed into South Street because of the 100-metre gasworks between Folly Mill Lane and Church Street.
It was originally intended work would continue with temporary traffic lights, but with reduced road widths, Southern Gas Networks has decided to close the road with a one-way system in place.
There will be no parking on the eastern side of South Street.
Construction manager Colin Horne said the road was being closed completely for public safety and to lay the new mains pipe in the best position in the road.
