When it rains heavily, floodwater can make driving along the B3091 in the Guys Marsh area challenging. In winter, ‘hazardous’ ice can form.
The affected area, near the prison, lies within Melbury Abbas and Cann Parish Council. Last week, Cllr Jenny Weston warned the road will be busier as Shaftesbury area residents head to Sturminster for coronavirus testing and vaccinations. And an alternative route, the A30, has also flooded recently at East Stour.
