  • Thank you for your report concerning temporary traffic lights on the A31.

    These traffic lights were implemented as an emergency measure as we identified a BT manhole cover as posing a safety risk to road users. We apologise for the disruption they have caused. I can confirm that we coordinated with BT to finish emergency repairs yesterday afternoon (13 October 2022), and will be able to fully reopen the road once it has been made safe.

    We appreciate your patience and understanding whilst we deal with our emergency safety repairs.
