DRAINAGE work on the A35 Upton Bypass switches to off-peak work next week, with a lane closure on the westbound carriageway between 9.30am and 3.30pm each day.

Dorset Council has warned drivers to allow extra time for their journeys.

The ongoing work, which started on January 12, is taking place so a blocked drainage pipe can be replaced.

Engineers will be working between the Upton Bypass on-slip and the Baker's Arms Roundabout from Monday, January 20, up until Friday, January 24.
