Relief Road work about to get noisy? That’s missing the point.


Following a local media headline that ‘work on the Relief Road is about to get noisy’ the Weymouth Relief Road team is reassuring local residents that night working to lift railway bridge beams into place near Manor Roundabout should not keep them awake at night.

As we’ll be working over the railway line we can only do the work at night. The point of the team’s news release to local media was to tell residents about the work, so they knew what was happening if they saw lights or trucks moving about in the middle of the night. Residents close to the area have been informed of the works taking place by letter. As with any construction work there will be some noise as the beams are lifted into place, but it should be kept to a minimum – apart from our responsibility to the local community, the planning authority wouldn’t allow noisy work overnight.

    Typical of the Echo to go printing inaccurate information!

    My husband and I are always amazed to see how swiftly the relief road is progressing.

    We come into Weymouth every ten days or so from the Wareham end- and endure road repair delays from our part of the blogosphere just to catch a glimpse or two of huge effort with the new road.

    We received copy of Dorset for you in the post the other day and were not too surprised to see pictures of some of the amazing finds including fossils. Will these go on display eventually?

    Carry on with the good work.
