DORCHESTER: Badgers bodge roads forcing closures

Badgers have forced the closure of a road near Dorchester, causing damage totalling more than £3,000 in emergency repairs.

Holes emerged in the road between Lewell and Woodsford Castle, a popular cycle road, forcing its closure.

This week county council road crews have been repairing the damage after having to get a special licence from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to enable them to work around the badger setts, which are protected by law.

Experts from Natural England were on hand while the work went ahead to give advice on how to deal with the badgers – including the installation of plastic piping to allow the badgers to gain access to the setts.

That work was expected to be completed today (Thursday), but the road crews may have to close the road again and return in July to make more permanent repairs once the badger’s breeding season has finished.
