If you have to travel via the Mannings Heath roundabout on a daily basis, you will need to find an alternative route at the end of April.
Five days of essential resurfacing works to the Mannings Heath roundabout begins at 5am on Monday 25 April.
The roundabout will be closed 24 hours a day for the entire period and is expected to re-open at 6am on Saturday 30 April.
All approaches to the roundabout will be closed to traffic.
The A3049 Canford Way will be closed in both directions between the Mannings Heath roundabout and Alderney roundabout.
The A3049 Dorset Way will be closed northbound between the Tower Park roundabout and Mannings Heath roundabout.
The B3074 Canford Heath Road will be closed from the Sherborne Crescent roundabout to Mannings Heath roundabout.
Mannings Heath Road will remain open for access to surrounding businesses. However, the approach to and from Mannings Heath roundabout will be closed. Access is via Yarrow Road or Ringwood Road.
Tower Park remains open throughout these works and can be accessed via Mannings Heath Road, Yarrow Road and Ling Road. All businesses are operating as normal.
Cllr Mike Greene, BCP Council’s portfolio holder for Transport and Sustainability, said: “The Mannings Heath roundabout services some of our busiest roads and deals with a large amount of traffic every day. We have a responsibility to ensure this well-used area remains in a safe condition now and for the future. The essential resurfacing works will better-protect resident’s vehicles and make for smoother and safer journeys for everyone. We appreciate that there will be some disruption to people’s journeys, but the benefits felt five days later will really improve this essential route through Poole and into Bournemouth.”
Road users are advised to allow extra time for journeys during this week, follow the in-place diversions, use alternative routes or explore other travel options, such as buses or cycling.
The use of grouted asphalt on these crucial repairs will ensure that the roundabout and its approaches continue to function as a robust route for residents, businesses and freight for many years.
