Congestion warning during protest, Chideock
MOTORISTS are advised against travelling through Chideock village this Friday (August 20) because of planned protests.
Demonstrators in the past have repeatedly pressed the button on a pedestrian crossing in their fight against traffic pollution and HGVs on the A35.
Traffic through Chideock has been described as being congested during these protests.
Dorset Police has been working with the organisers to ensure public safety during the demonstration set to take place between 2pm and 3pm.
Inspector Caroline Naughton of Bridport Police said: “Through the Partners and Communities Together (PACT) forum, the issues raised by the A35 Action Group are being addressed.
You may also want to watch:
“I have outlined my concerns to the group over the impact that this protest will have on congestion and access along the A35 by all road users including the emergency services, and the impact on the local community, however they have decided to continue with their course of action”.
Officers will be in attendance on Friday, to ensure that there are no breaches of the peace and that there is no risk to the safety of road users or pedestrians.
