Construction work is due to take place to improve visibility at the A352 / New Road junction near Sherborne.

This junction has been the location of several road traffic collisions where people have been injured.

The work will start on 2 April 2024, and will take up to four weeks to complete.

We will relocate road signs and move fences to improve visibility. Road markings will also be adjusted to improve the angle at which drivers approach the junction from New Road.

As part of the improvement works, the speed limit of the A352 will be reduced to 30mph on Horsecastles Lane, Ottery Lane, and Dancing Hill. This will also include a section of the 40mph limit on Sherborne Hill.

Jack Wiltshire, Head of Highways, said: “We are committed to improving road safety. This scheme will help to address issues at a junction where there have been multiple collisions over the years. We thank everyone for their patience while these works take place.” 

To enable the work to be carried out safely, traffic will be managed with temporary traffic lights. Drivers are encouraged to allow extra time when planning their journey in this area while the work takes place.
