A350 Closure - 10th to 19th May AND 29th May to 7th June

Tuesday, May 02 2017

From 10th to 19th May AND 29th May to 7th June, the A350 will be closed for resurfacing between Sturminster Marshall and Spetisbury. The closure will be in force between 0900 and 1530 each weekday and will affect the X8 service. Saturday and Sunday services will remain unaffected.

The X8 will be diverted during these times and a specal timetable will be in operation in both directions. Poole-bound journeys will divert from Spetisbury onto Louse Lane, then along a short section of the A31. They will then turn off the A31 at Stag Gate and head along this road to Newton Crossroads where they will proceed ahead and resume their normal route from the Ginger Fox. Blandford-bound will do the same in reverse.

The week of 22 May to 26 May will not be affected.

Due to the disruption, we will unfortunately be unable to service the following stops on the A350:

  • The Pumping Station
  • Moor Court Cottages
  • New Buildings
  • Crawford Bridge Crossroads

The nearest alternative stops will be located at:

  • Castle View, Spetisbury (Blandford-bound)
  • Green Acres, Spetisbury (Poole-bound)
  • Newton Crossroads, Sturminster Marshall (both directions)
