Dorset Council Says It Can’t Stop Drivers Ignoring Royal Chase Diversion

Some residents have complained about the extra traffic as car and lorry drivers avoid a lengthy official diversion.

The A30 will remain closed overnight from 8pm to 6am at Royal Chase Roundabout until 8th September, to allow for resurfacing. Dorset Council has issued a statement addressing the concerns, as you’ll hear.
