Route 40: Langton Matravers

Dorset Highways have had to amend the way they are working at Langton with immediate effect meaning the 40 in both directions will be unable to serve Kingston, Acton Lane or Langton Matravers and will divert between Corfe Castle and Herston in both directions. This is likely to be until 16.00 Thursday 13th August and again between 09.00 and 16.00 Friday 14th August. A free shuttle minibus will operate between Tom's Field Road, Langton Matravers and Halves Cottages, Corfe Castle, from approximately 10.30 today and for the full duration tomorrow. Please see the temporary timetable below.
